ALERT™ - Obstetrics

The one-day ALERT™ Course for Obstetric patients is a multi-professional course created to teach clinical staff a structured and prioritised approach to the assessment and management of the acutely ill patient.

It is expected that the introduction of the ALERT™ Obstetric Course will result in specific improvements in quality indicators including:

  • Improvement in the general care of the obstetric patient, from the first trimester to post delivery
  • Earlier referrals to the intensive care unit
  • Learning from previous national ; lower mortality and morbidity of the obstetric patient
  • Improved multi-professional teamwork
  • Improved communication,
  • Fewer complaints from patients and their relatives


The ALERT™ Obstetric Course incorporates a comprehensive reference manual which the candidates receive pre-course, along with interactive presentations practical demonstrations role-play of clinical patient based scenarios during which the candidates are encouraged to reflect on their actions and to consider ‘What would I do next?’. The course has:

  • A blended, flexible, learning approach.
  • A proven track record of delivery of more than 15 years in adult patients.
  • A multi-professional candidate applicability.
  • A candidate course certificate that is recognised by deanery’s, acute trusts and professional bodies in the UK and abroad.
  • A straightforward programme to organise and deliver with minimal equipment required.
