Welcome to the Health Professionals area. As well as supporting parents we also support Health Professionals and have a wide range of resources available to you. Simply register with us or log in to access them.
Twins Trust Maternity Engagement QI Project (T-MEP)
Research shows that when NICE Quality Standard 46 (QS46) is implemented in full, the rate of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, emergency c-sections and neonatal admissions is reduced. The Twins Trust Maternity Engagement QI Project is working with maternity units across the UK to identify and implement changes to improve antenatal care for multiple pregnancies, in line with NICE QS46, which will help deliver elements of SBLCB and Better Births.
CPD Learning – Videos and Webinars
This area is free and provides access to CPD videos covering antenatal, intrapartum, best practice and multiple specific study days. A log of your CPD activity is recorded under ‘My CPD’ and can be viewed or printed off in certificate format at any time.
Resources– for Professionals and Parents
Under the Healthcare Professional Resources you will find our NICE endorsed multiple pregnancy care plan and case studies. We also produce an email newsletter containing the latest news, research, upcoming multiple specific events and CPD opportunities. In the Parent Resources there are multiple-specific factsheets on safer sleeping and PND and booklets including Healthy Multiple Pregnancy, Neonatal Care, Preparing for Parenthood, TTTS, Breastfeeding and Bereavement.
Twins Trust Centre for Research and Clinical Excellence
Twins Trust supports research into conditions and concerns affecting multiple-birth babies and their families. As part of the Global Twins and Multiples Priority Setting Partnership, we helped develop a top-10 list of research priorities for multiple-birth families, clinicians and researchers. Based on these, we are seeking to continue our mission to reduce stillbirths, neonatal deaths and neonatal admissions through key research. Each year we also fund research in partnership with the BMFMS.
The Twins Trust Centre for Research and Clinical Excellence, based at St George's Hospital in Tooting, provides further opportunities for research as well as supporting our quality improvement work across UK hospitals. As well as continuing existing research into multiple-specific issues, each year the centre will initiate three new research projects, organise two study days and provide remote support for professionals with multiple pregnancy-specific questions or queries about using the twin-specific growth charts.
