MOOC on Preeclampsia

The MOOC on preeclampsia updates knowledge and understanding and introduces the latest developments in this field.

At present, this MOOC is available in French.

Preeclampsia is one of the main complications of pregnancy and may have serious consequences for mother and fetus alike. Treatment tools and modalities are constantly evolving and so healthcare professionals are in need of regular updates.

This MOOC, the first on preeclampsia, has been created by 8 French expert obstetrician-gynecologists, anesthetists, intensivists, and medical technologists. Recent data on preeclampsia are presented, thus highlighting what clinicians must know about diagnosis, management, and the latest innovations in the field.
