Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with HEE Maternity Team to develop a catalogue of resources for maternity staff to easily access key elearning to support the delivery of care for women and families.

About the programme

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.

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.

The programme is structured into the following course folders to reflect the immediate and essential actions of the report.

  1. Workforce planning and sustainability
  2. Safe staffing
  3. Escalation and accountability
  4. Clinical governance – leadership
  5. Clinical governance – incident investigation and complaints
  6. Learning from maternal deaths
  7. Multidisciplinary training
  8. Complex antenatal care
  9. Preterm birth
  10. Labour and birth
  11. Obstetric anaesthesia
  12. Postnatal care
  13. Bereavement care
  14. Neonatal care
  15. Supporting families

Primary and secondary audiences

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 support workers and neonatal staff.
