APEC e-learning course is now live
Our new e-learning course – Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy – has been designed for midwives, doctors and healthcare professionals caring for women with raised blood pressure in pregnancy.
Supporting APEC makes a real difference.
Action on Pre-eclampsia aims to raise public and professional awareness of pre-eclampsia, improve care, and ease or prevent physical and emotional suffering caused by the disease. We receive no statutory funding and are mainly supported by the kind donations and subscriptions from the public – people like you.
