In 2005 a multi-professional team of trainers from Bristol took a pilot train-the-trainers package, based on the ‘in house’ course that had been running at Southmead Hospital, to be piloted by Carl Weiner and his team at Kansas University, USA. They successfully ran local courses, and began evaluating the effect.

In 2015 Carl Weiner and his team at University of Kansas Hospital published their experience of seven years of PROMPT training; leading to better team communication, a 100% reduction in brachial plexus injury, better umbilical cord blood test results, and a 30% reduction in caesarean section rates. The projected savings, in terms of reduced litigation and costs, totals US$38 million.
