This learning resource package for managing complications in pregnancy and childbirth has been developed primarily to support the implementation of preservice education programs for the training of skilled providers. The package is not meant to replace existing curricula, nor should its use require that curricula be changed. Instead, the package provides teaching/learning methods, materials and other resources to support the implementation of education programs for skilled providers, whether they are midwives, doctors or nurses. Although this learning resource package was developed primarily for use in preservice education, the modular format and competency-based approach make it appropriate for use in in-service training programs as well.
