Multidisciplinary study days for all involved in the care of pregnant women
Our recent APEC Study days at Belfast and Keele were extremely well received, and we have had some lovely feedback from delegates.
“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!”

Our study days are run in conjunction with hospitals and universities ‘in house’. This keeps overheads low for us and saves money for delegates.

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 ”

However, feedback from our study days shows that 92% of midwives and healthcare professionals feel more confident dealing with pre-eclampsia after attending.
Our study days are widely recognised as being excellent, with expert speakers who are leaders in the field of pre-eclampsia and associated conditions.
We do not make a profit on our study days but run them purely as part of our core charitable objectives. Therefore the cost for training events, and also running them ‘in house’ is kept to a minimum to enable as many people to attend as possible.
