Globally a woman dies every six minutes due to pre-eclampsia.
92% of midwives and healthcare professionals said that they feel more confident dealing with pre-eclampsia after attending a study day
Why attend an APEC Study Day?
Delegates who register for our study days on pre-eclampsia reveal that prior to the day, they are not confident in recognising symptoms, talking to women about pre-eclampsia and knowing at what point they should be referring women for expert assessment. They are not always aware of current research into the condition, and which trials they could be a part of.
“Thank you for a wonderful study day, really couldn’t fault any aspect. I feel like I’ve benefited already from the day – my long shift yesterday presented me with newly delivered pre-eclamptic primip with very unstable BP following birth! I certainly felt more confident in caring for her with all my new knowledge!! Will recommend the day to my colleagues ”
