Action on Pre-eclampsia’s study days, which focusses on pre-eclampsia and associated conditions, are widely recognised as being excellent; with 98% of midwives and healthcare professionals feeling more confident dealing with pre-eclampsia after attending and 98% recommending our courses to colleagues. We have been arranging and running these events since our inception, thirty years ago.

APEC Study Days

About APEC Study Days

APEC study days are a core part of our 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.

Our study days are run in conjunction with hospitals and universities ‘in house’. This keeps overheads low for us and saves money for delegates. We may also be able to offer a subsidy in some areas where we have identified a need, please ask at the time of enquiry. If you would like any further information, or have any questions, please call or email us at or call us on 01386 761 848 to chat to one of the APEC team.

“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!”

Julie Smith, DAU lead midwife (recently returned to work following maternity leave)
