The 2018 PROMPT 3 manual has been published by Cambridge University Press. The third edition has been comprehensively updated in line with recent evidence and national and international guidelines to reflect the latest research and current clinical practice. The course manual is essential reading for all those attending a local PROMPT course. It is also useful as a stand-alone textbook, providing evidence-based, up-to-date information for any health professional involved in maternity care. Copies of the new UK manual can be purchased from the Cambridge University Press.
A local Australia and New Zealand edition will be available in late 2018.
The Auckland PROMPT faculty have been working with Bodyfx, a New Zealand special effects company, to produce more realistic wearable props for our post-partum haemorrhage scenarios.
