    ALARM was developed by family physicians, obstetricians, midwives and nurses, who jointly continue to maintain and teach the course. ALARM is grounded in best available Canadian evidence, making it highly applicable to an all-Canadian audience. ALARM is aligned with the Managing Obstetrical Risk More Efficiently Program (MOREOB), a course developed and taught interprofessionally and commonly required for Canadian intrapartum-care providers working within a hospital setting. The ALARM content is updated every year, an important feature of quality professional development programming, especially in the rapidly changing area of obstetric care.The ALARM course objective is to evaluate, update and maintain the competence of specialists, family physicians, midwifes and nurses. Upon completion, participants understand how to improve the outcomes and process of intra-partum and immediate postpartum care.

    This two-day course offers case-based plenary sessions, hands-on workshops and a comprehensive examination process. The content of the course is evidence based and incorporates the Canadian practice guidelines, so participants who complete the course gain an understanding of the latest best practices for providing care.
