Helping Mothers Survive: Pre-eclampsia & Eclampsia (HMS PE&E)

Helping Mothers Survive Pre-eclampsia & Eclampsia (HMS PE&E) is a learning module designed to address the second leading cause of maternal death globally, pre-eclampsia & eclampsia. It is designed to be delivered at the facility level using hands on skills practice and simulation to build skills of the entire team. Key competencies covered by this course include: rapid assessment and classification, administration of loading and maintenance doses of magnesium sulfate and antihypertensive medications, and management of convulsions. The first day of this training is designed for all health care workers and providers who may encounter pregnant, laboring, and post-partum women who need to be able to rapidly diagnose and treat women at any level of the health system.  The second day is for skilled birth attendants to enhance their ability for ongoing management of severe pre-eclamptsia and eclampsia. HMS PE&E is endorsed by ICM, UNFPA, ICN, and AAP.
