K2 is pleased to announce that two new hospitals and a university have recently begun using our Perinatal Training Programme (PTP), with many hospitals and universities which have benefited from free trial access, preparing to join over the coming months. This brings the number of PTP users to over 230,000 in 24 different countries.
We are continually developing content for our award-winning training system based on feedback received from current users. It remains the UK’s most comprehensive fetal monitoring and maternity crisis management training system and is used by clinicians around the globe.
We’d like to extend a warm welcome to the three new sites now benefiting from the advantages of our training system.
