Free eLearning course in pre-eclampsia and eclampsia

The evidence-based management of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia
is an interactive, e-learning course for health professionals that was developed by clinicians at the University of Oxford. The course is available in English and Spanish through the Geneva Foundation for Medical Education and Research (GFMER) at http://www.gfmer.ch/SRH-Course-2010/pre-eclampsia-University-of-Oxford/index.htm.

The aim of the course is to familiarize participants with the most up-to-date, evidence-based, principles determining how pre-eclampsia and eclampsia should be managed. There are two versions: Basic for healthcare professionals who want to know/revise the fundamentals, and Advanced for doctors, midwives and nurses who want to know the evidence behind the recommendations.

Following successful completion of the course, participants may take a knowledge assessment test. Those who correctly answer at least 15 of the 20 MCQs are entitled to a course certificate jointly signed by the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the University of Oxford and GFMER.
