10:00am | Working with women who have STI's

Monica Vitale

Monica Vitale (RN, BN, GradCertNur(CritCare), MN(NP) ) is a Nurse Practitioner and Lead Nurse Educator for the Clinical Education Unit at True Relationships and Reproductive Health, Queensland. Monica’s goal is to raise the profile of sexual and reproductive health by supporting clinicians on the ground. She aims to further debunk myths that prevent the inclusion of sexual and reproductive health in daily healthcare.  Monica has recently developed the Antenatal Sexual health Kit (ASK) ; a course that is focused on equipping antenatal clinicians with practical skills to improve sexual health during pregnancy. She is excited to be talking to midwives today who are keen to learn more to improve mother and baby healthcare. You can see more courses that Monica facilitates by visiting & Education/Medical Education & Clinical Training.




Working with women who have Prolonged Rupture of Membranes (PROM)

Brian Peat

Born in Sydney, I went to school and to University of Sydney. However like a lot of young men, I was unsure of my path. I failed university and went to the university of life, where I worked as a trainee psychiatric nurse, in various construction roles and as a truckdriver before eventually going back to study, got into medicine after a year of science and never looked back. I was committed to O&G by 4th year and did my specialist training at King George V Hospital under the mentorship of Dr Andrew Child. In 2001 I decided to move my family to Adelaide for a number of reasons including job opportunities and lifestyle choices. Over the last 10 years I have gradually cut back my hours maintaining a healthy work life balance. My interests are health politics and best practices in obstetrics.
