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.

Short but not sweet: A study on the impact of short custodial sentences on mothers and their childrenby Lucy Baldwin and Rhona Epstein
This research report bears powerful witness to the harsh impact on women and their children of the short custodial sentences too often meted out in the name of justice. It draws attention to the ripple effects of imprisoning mothers, and the turbulence it causes in the lives of their families.
This paper considers how maternal emotions and the maternal role are assembled and challenged through carceral space, and more specifically, how mothers themselves assimilate this experience whilst navigating motherhood post incarceration.
