Modification to work intensity scores for Labour Ward modules

All ATSMs have a work intensity score of either 1.0 or 2.0. This scoring system has been well received and allows trainees to structure their choices such that at any one time the work intensity score does not increase above 3.0. However, trainees taking the Advanced Labour Ward Practitioner ATSM (score 1.0) and the Labour Ward Lead ATSM (score 2.0) at the same time may count the total score as only 2.0.

This modification reflects the fact that the Labour Ward Lead module also requires completion of the Advanced Labour Ward Practitioner module and when taken concurrently the clinical areas overlap considerably. The usual scores apply if either ATSM is taken separately. This change will take immediate effect
