The PROMPT (PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training) course covers the management of a range of obstetric emergency situations. It contributes to the training standards for the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts (CNST) in England and Wales, as well as being best practice in many other countries. The course consists of interactive lectures, drills and workshops, providing hands-on experience of practical skills and teamworking in simulated obstetric emergency situations. This second edition has been comprehensively updated to reflect the latest research and current clinical practice. Four new modules have been added, broadening the scope of the book. The Course Manual is essential reading for all those attending a PROMPT course, who are encouraged to read the book before participating. It also provides much useful information for any health professional wishing to understand more about the management of obstetric emergencies.
