New PReCePT: Prevention of Cerebral Palsy in Preterm Labour e-learning programme now available

Posted on: November 18th, 2020 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), in partnership with the ASHN Network, have collaborated to develop a new, free elearning programme for perinatal healthcare professionals.

The PReCePT: Prevention of Cerebral Palsy in Preterm Labour elearning programme, released in line with World Prematurity Day, has been designed for perinatal healthcare professionals to support education around the administration of magnesium sulphate to mothers in preterm labour for neonatal neuroprotection.

Building on current NICE guidance, and the successful roll out of the national PReCePT programme by the AHSN Network, 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. This resource will be invaluable for training new staff and will be vital in sustaining high uptakes of MgSO4 across the NHS.

How to access the elearning

The PReCePT: Prevention of Cerebral Palsy in Preterm Labour is available to the health and care workforce via the elearning for healthcare Hub, AICC and the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).
