Stefan Kane

 

Stefan is a maternal fetal medicine subspecialist obstetrician based primarily at the Royal Women's Hospital, Melbourne, where he is head of the Fetal Medicine Unit, acting head of the Diabetes Unit, and Program Director for MFM Training. His clinical engagements cover the spectrum of high-risk pregnancy care, and include preterm birth prevention, multiple pregnancy, fetal medicine and maternal medical disorders in pregnancy.

He also performs tertiary-level fetal and gynaecological ultrasound. Stefan's primary research focus is on the maternal neurological effects of pre-eclampsia. His PhD research project aims to evaluate the potential utility of maternal ophthalmic ultrasound in assessing changes in the cerebrovasculature and intracranial pressure of pre-eclamptic women. Other research interests include structural and genetic fetal anomalies, red blood cell alloimmunisation, preterm birth prevention, and early pregnancy prediction of later complications. He has published over 30 peer-reviewed papers on these topics, and has acted as site co-ordinator for a number of international randomised controlled trials. Stefan is actively engaged in teaching at all levels, from medical students to advanced specialist trainees, and holds an honorary position as a Clinical Senior Lecturer in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. He has a longstanding interest in prevocational medical education, and serves as an accreditation team leader for the intern accreditation authorities in Victoria and Queensland. He also serves on the Council of the Society of Obstetric Medicine of Australia and New Zealand as honorary secretary, and is a member of the steering committee for the Women's and Newborn Health network of the Melbourne Academic Centre for Health. As the Clinical Lead for Preterm Birth with Safer Care Victoria, Stefan also participates in the Australian Preterm Birth Prevention Alliance.
