The SOGC has been working with Health Canada to address the stock-out of PTU recently and we are pleased to confirm that the situation has been resolved. Thank you to Drs. Venu Jain and Denice Feig, who assisted in the consultations with Health Canada, the SOGC and other stakeholders.
We are working together to find a solution to reduce the risk of experiencing such critical shortages of medications that are essential to obstetric practice.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SOGC has opened access to some of the ALARM course materials, including the course manual, in order to assist all health care workers
during this critical period. Please follow the link below to access the COVID-19 resource page.
Available ALARM resources
ALARM was developed by obstetricians/gynaecologists, family physicians, midwives and nurses, who jointly continue to maintain and teach the course. Backed by the SOGC, the ALARM course arose out of our work to improve the care provided to women, babies, and families during pregnancy, labour, and postpartum.
Please note that there are upcoming ALARM courses planned that are not yet listed below. They will be added as soon as logistical aspects are finalized.
If you would like to hold an ALARM course in your community, please contact us at email@example.com. Please note that a minimum of 12 participants is required.
