The Scottish Core Teaching and Training in Emergencies (SCOTTIE) Course Course has been developed to provide a standardised training course in managing emergencies for all health-care professionals who participate in the care of pregnant women. The course has been designed to cover the fundamental aspects of maternal emergencies and is suitable for all maternity-care professionals working in all care environments in Scotland.
‘SCOTTIE’ is one of the skills-based courses developed and rolled out by the SMMD Programme in support of maternity-care professionals across Scotland.
The aim of the course is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to respond appropriately to emergencies in pregnancy and childbirth.
Candidates will be able to:
- Develop an understanding of the physiological processes that can lead to emergencies in pregnancy and childbirth
- Practice the immediate management of emergencies in a simulated clinical setting.
