This NHS England e-learning programme aims to support the wider multidisciplinary team including ACCS (Acute Care Common Stem), Obstetrics and Anaesthesia and all allied health professionals who encounter pregnant or recently pregnant women in their clinical practice. 

Trainee physicians only encounter pregnant women occasionally and may not have a working knowledge of either the dynamic physiology of pregnancy or the effect this has on interpretation of examination findings and laboratory investigations. This may lead to a delay in the timely and appropriate management of the acutely unwell pregnant woman.

These sessions are designed to build up the learner’s knowledge and complement their exposure to unwell pregnant women, which is often infrequent.

The sessions feature interactive exercises, case examples and short videos to increase the learner’s knowledge and confidence in this field.
