    Introduction The Government set an ambition to reduce the number of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, maternal deaths

    and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth by 20% by 2020 and by 50% by 2025.

    Utilising research from the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG), in-house research and

    further information from local teams, HEE have produced this catalogue of quality assured multi-

    disciplinary training packages that will support maternity services to develop

    and maintain high standards of teamwork, communication, clinical skills and a culture of safety whilst

    reducing maternal and fetal harm.

    You can use the catalogue to develop an appropriate bid, incorporating a range of appropriate training

    from the different headings: Leadership, Fetal Growth, Fetal Monitoring, Teamworking and

    Communication, Teamworking and Skills and Drills, Skills and Drills, Cultural Capabilities, and other

    training/ courses.
