Pregnancy learning plan

8.25 credits

Learn more about diabetes in pregnancy, identifying ectopic pregnancy, NICE guidelines on antenatal and postnatal mental health, hyperemesis gravidarum, diabetes in pregnancy and skin changes in pregnancy. A patient case study is presented on headache in pregnancy, and a ‘red flags’ article highlights symptoms that warrant urgent referral to the obstetric department.

The range of topics reflects the role of GPs and other healthcare professionals in diagnosis, management, investigation, referral and follow-up.

Each educational activity provides key learning points along with a post-test so you can check what you have learned. You can undertake the whole plan or select individual modules to match your identified learning needs. CPD credits can be claimed for all modules completed.
