The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and The PROMPT Maternity Foundation (PMF) are working together to improve intrapartum outcomes through better care and effective training.
PROMPT (PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training) is an evidence based multi-professional obstetric emergencies training package that has been developed by PMF for use in local maternity units. Implementation of PROMPT has been associated with improved outcomes in the UK, USA, Australia and Zimbabwe.
