PROMPT is delighted to confirm the release of our new virtual PROMPT online package.

We are truly excited as we are now in a position to offer the package to any maternity unit for free!

The course is a half-day e-learning package with up-to-date information covering key messages and national guidance, including:

  • Recent UKOSS and MBRRACE-UK reports on learning from COVID-19 in pregnant women
  • Presentations covering maternity emergency care
  • Guidance related to COVID-19
  • Interactive videos of emergency drills
  • Maternal critical care and COVID-19
  • Perinatal mental health & domestic abuse and COVID-19

The materials provided are intended to be adapted locally to ensure that you provide a locally-relevant update for all of your maternity staff. There is full guidance for your training team on how to make your 'tailor-made' local e-learning course included in the resources.

PROMPT remains committed to hands-on multi-professional training. However, whilst the national requirement for face-to-face training is paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this interim PROMPT e-learning package gives maternity units everything they need to ensure their staff remain updated during this challenging time.

A message from our Trustees:

The PROMPT Maternity Foundation (PMF) Trustees have decided, in light of the exceptionally challenging circumstances of this COVID-19 emergency for women and healthcare professionals, to provide this PROMPT e-Learning Interim Maternity Training Package free of charge to maternity units. 

This package fulfils the core ethos and aims of the PMF charity: to support safer maternity care and reduce preventable harm to mothers and babies by making PROMPT as widely available as possible.

The Trustees and the PMF team have worked hard to make these resources freely available to maternity units, until normal training can be safely resumed.
