As you are aware, as of December 2020, RANZCOG has ended their term as licence-holder for the distribution of PROMPT training in Australia and New Zealand.

We would like to thank RANZCOG for their dedication and hard work in coordinating the rollout of PROMPT training throughout Australia and New Zealand since 2012. We are glad to remain close partners with RANZCOG and are grateful for their continued endorsement and recognition of our training methods and materials.

As we move forward, rest assured, PROMPT will continue to be firmly established in Australia and New Zealand. In the short-term, The PROMPT Maternity Foundation in the UK will ensure that maternity units are able to access support and guidance as needed (please contact us via [email protected] if you need any help).

Our long-term aim is to expand the reach of PROMPT multi-professional training across Australia and New Zealand, supporting localisation of the PROMPT materials and ensuring they are available to any maternity unit wishing to deliver our training.

In addition, a new PROMPT e-learning package has recently been released to enable local PROMPT training to continue during the COVID-19 pandemic wherever social distancing makes face-to-face training impractical.  The UK version of this e-learning package is available for any unit to download free of charge; please visit PROMPT e-learning on our website.

We have been working with a multi-professional team of clinicians in Victoria to localise the PROMPT e-learning resources, so that they include national information that is particularly relevant for Australian and New Zealand maternity units. This adapted package will be available in early February 2021: do keep an eye on our website for more information www.promptmaternity.org.

In response to the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are developing a novel ‘virtual’ PROMPT Train the Trainers (T3) programme to enable greater accessibility to instruction on how to deliver the training in your units. 

Thank you from the PROMPT Maternity Foundation for your continued support of PROMPT, and we wish that you all keep safe and stay well.
