PROMPT (PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training) is an evidence based multi-professional training package for obstetric emergencies. It is associated with direct improvements in perinatal outcome and has been proven to improve knowledge, clinical skills and team working.

The PROMPT Maternity Foundation (PMF) is a multi-professional group of obstetricians, midwives and anaesthetists based in the UK. PMF strives to make childbirth safer through training, education and research. Our aim has always been to make evidence based multi-professional obstetric emergencies training available to all.

Update on PROMPT Training in Zimbabwe

Staff in hospitals across Zimbabwe were delighted to 'show off' their certificates following their training in hospitals which is run locally for local staff by local staff.  Participant feedback showed that participants learnt a lot and that the information they received during training would enable them to improve in the management of obstetric emergencies. Lectures and drills were used during the training and each participant had an opportunity to take part which made the training more meaningful as each individual had an opportunity to practice real life situations. The ZCBC health commission provided emergency boxes for the hospitals with printed and laminated algorithms for each box. 


Train the Trainers - Barbados January 2016

PROMPT has just added to its increasing membership after a successful training course in Barbados. The Faculty of Mark James, Fiona Donald, Sharon Jordan and Mary Alvarez met a delightfully enthusiastic and truly multi professional group in Barbados who fully grasped the PROMPT ethos and although daunted at times embraced the challenge to ensure the roll out of multi professional training within the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown. We wish them well with their training and look forward to hearing how it is progressing.
