The PROMPT (PRactical Obstetrics Multi-Professional Training) multi-professional training course covers the management of a range of obstetric emergency situations and contributes to the training requirements of the maternity standards for CNST levels 2 and 3.
This book is the Course manual for the PROMPT Course, but can also be bought as a stand-alone obstetric emergencies manual. Each subject is presented in an ‘easy to read’ format with ‘Key learning points’ identified at the start of each of the modules. Useful tips on teamwork training for effective communication in an emergency are also included.
The ultimate goals of training are to improve clinical outcomes and to reduce patient safety incidents. The PROMPT course has been evaluated and has been found to be associated with improved clinical outcomes when implemented at local level. A locally run course is both economical and also allows for the maximum number of maternity staff to be regularly trained.
The PROMPT Course Manual is essential reading for all attendees (who should read it before participating in the course) and will also provide much useful information for any health professional wishing to understand more about training in the management of obstetric emergencies.
