About the development of this course
The inspiration for the development of this course came from a meeting organised by EngenderHealth and the University of Oxford in 2007 attended by groups and individuals interested in improving maternal health globally1. Subsequently, the University of Oxford offered to produce an e-learning module for the management of pre-eclampsia/eclampsia, with the goal of ensuring that lack of knowledge should never be a reason for sub-optimal management of patients.
The production of this course has been generously funded by the MacArthur Foundation through Engenderhealth, and developed by a group of healthcare professionals, led by Stephen Kennedy, José Villar and Catriona Murray (from the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the University of Oxford) between March 2009 and March 2010.
