About the Prevention of Cerebral Palsy in Preterm Labour programme

This interactive elearning resource has been designed for perinatal healthcare professionals to support education around the administration of magnesium sulphate for neuroprotection to mothers in preterm labour. Building on current NICE guidance, and the successful roll out of the national PReCePT programme, this module will guide clinicians through the clinical benefits of administering magnesium sulphate (MgSO4) to mothers who go into labour before 30 weeks gestation. It will provide information on the neuroprotective qualities of this cost-effective and readily available drug, the detail of how it is administered and the positive impact it can have on the lives of neonates and their families.
