The Pre-hospital PROMPT training package will be released as part of the Annual Update in July 2021. The training provides hands-on simulation training for paramedic and ambulance staff who new required to provide emergency maternity care in the pre-hospital setting.  However the themes covered in the package could easily be adapted for use by other allied health care professionals providing pre-hospital care in Emergency Departments, community and midwife led birth centres.

Those trainers who have used the PROMPT ‘Course in a Box’ for their hospital maternity training will be familiar with the layout of this new training package.

The Trainer’s Guide provides guidance and materials for midwives, obstetricians and paramedic tutors wishing to implement Pre-hospital PROMPT courses in their maternity unit or region. It is supported by downloadable training materials, including Power Point presentations, demonstration videos and specific treatment algorithms for use on your local training days and in the clinical setting.

All information is based on UK national guidance and recommendation including the national UK Ambulance Services Clinical Practice Guidelines (JRCALC Guidelines 2016) and the UK Resuscitation Council Guidance (2015).

The PMF team launched a Southwest Pre-hospital PROMPT Training day in January 2017 where it was incredibly well received.
