The introduction of PROMPT training has been associated with significant improvements in maternal and neonatal clinical outcomes. Collection of outcome data alongside PROMPT training is encouraged in all units that implement PROMPT to assess on going efficacy of local training.

Collaborators wishing to disseminate PROMPT on a wider scale throughout a country/region are in a unique position to collect research data that may help to assess the impact of PROMPT training on maternal and neonatal outcomes in a new setting. This type of research is essential for maximising the efficacy of global PROMPT training and provides valuable lessons that may help implement this training package to the benefit of more mothers and babies around the world.

PMF would strongly encourage international collaborators to consider implementing research alongside any new national/regional training ventures. Links with academic institutions that may be able to support such research are often beneficial.
