Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with HEE midwifery leads, maternity and the neonatal digital steering group to develop a catalogue of resources for maternity staff to access key elearning to support the delivery of care for women and families.

The Maternity Resources: Ockenden Immediate and Essential Actions catalogue comprises existing programmes on the elfh Hub that have been collated into 1 easily accessible learning package.

A comprehensive suite of programmes within the catalogue provides high quality training relevant to staff working in maternity services such as midwives, neonatal nurses, obstetricians, maternity healthcare support workers and paediatric staff. The programmes feature individual sessions which cover a host of topics including medical problems in pregnancy, fetal monitoring and preterm birth.

The catalogue has been developed to support the findings of the Ockenden report  and to enable the workforce to respond to Local Actions for Learning (LAfL) and Immediate and Essential Actions (IEAs) for the system.

The new maternity catalogue supports the successful delivery of these LAfL and IEAs by making elearning more easily accessible as a ‘one stop shop’ for maternity services colleagues.

Professor Wendy Reid, Education, Quality and Medical Director at HEE, said: “We are delighted to take this positive step to support improvements to the delivery of maternity services across the country. This catalogue will make it easier for health and care colleagues to access high quality learning resources on many aspects of maternity care to help ensure that the NHS in England is one of the safest places in the world to have a baby.”
