In May 2006, the UK National Screening Committee launched their GBS online learning package. This learning package has been developed to raise awareness of GBS amongst health care professionals and it provides a comprehensive multidisciplinary interactive teaching resource. Developed by the Women’s Health Specialist Library (part of the National Library for Health), the learning package is based upon the current UK guidelines published by the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists. It is divided into three sections – antenatal; delivery; and postnatal. Within each section there is the option to access:
- an introduction to GBS
- different clinical scenarios
- a series of quiz questions to test knowledge
- a FAQs section
Each section is self contained making easy access for busy health care professionals and allowing individuals to work through relevant sections at their preferred pace.
