New PReCePT: Prevention of Cerebral Palsy in Preterm Labour e-learning programme now available
Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH), in partnership with the ASHN Network, have collaborated to develop a new, free e-learning programme for perinatal healthcare professionals.
The PReCePT: Prevention of Cerebral Palsy in Preterm Labour e-learning programme, released in line with World Prematurity Day, has been designed for perinatal healthcare professionals to support education around the administration of magnesium sulphate to mothers in preterm labour for neonatal neuroprotection.
Building on current NICE guidance, and the successful roll out of the national PReCePT programme by the AHSN Network, this module will guide clinicians through the clinical benefits of administering magnesium sulphate (MgSO4) to mothers who go into labour before 30 weeks gestation. It will provide information on the neuroprotective qualities of this cost-effective and readily available drug, the detail of how it is administered and the positive impact it can have on the lives of neonates and their families. This resource will be invaluable for training new staff and will be vital in sustaining high uptakes of MgSO4 across the NHS.
How to access the e-learning
The PReCePT: Prevention of Cerebral Palsy in Preterm Labour is available to the health and care workforce via the e-Learning for Healthcare Hub, AICC and the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).
