APEC Study Days 2020

Multidisciplinary study days on pre-eclampsia and associated conditions

Action on Pre-eclampsia’s study days are widely recognised as being excellent, with 96% of midwives and healthcare professionals feeling more confident dealing with pre-eclampsia after attending. We have been arranging and running these events since our inception nearly thirty years ago.

COVID-19 Update December 2020

We unfortunately had to cancel 11/13 events in the UK we had in our calendar for 2020 and the latest advice and guidance is to remain working from home where possible and no gatherings of more than 6. Therefore, for the next 6 months at least we will not be arranging any ‘Live’ study days. Due to the success of the online expert day we are exploring the webinar route for 2021.

We know how important education for healthcare professionals is and are  working on ways we can bring our study days to you virtually. More specifically we are exploring a webinar format and we are looking for your help in how this is designed. If you have 5 minutes we would appreciate you filling in a very short form. Thank you.

E-Learning course – Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy

Don’t forget this vital FREE resource which is also CPD accredited. Take the course


In the absence of live study days, we are busy creating a series of 90 minute webinars on all elements of pre-eclampsia.

The format will be:

  • Section 1: Lecture (slides will be supplied)
  • Section 2: Q/A, Discussion forum.

BUT we need to know what would be the most useful to you.
Please can we ask you to spend two minutes of your time filling in our VERY short survey so we know EXACTLY what you want to see.

Thank you so much for your patience and support.


APEC’s study days are widely recognised as being excellent

APEC host a number of pre-eclampsia study days across the UK, with guest speakers who are leaders in the field of pre-eclampsia and associated conditions. 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. However, feedback from 2018 and 2019 events show  96% of midwives and healthcare professionals had increased confidence and that they had learned new information they would share with work colleagues.

“Thank you so much for your help and support with the study days. It has made a huge difference to our unit. I have seen such a change in the management of pre-eclampsia since I have been back at work. The study days seem to have had a very positive impact on our practice which is fantastic!”
