The International Training Schools currently being planned as part of CA18211 are important to build capacity amongst researchers and clinicians. It is vital that health researchers build an evidence base for assessing and treating birth related trauma in order that care for women and families is optimised.

We are keen to hear from all our members and particularly from early career researchers. Tell us what type of training you require! Do you need training in relation to specific research methodologies? Do you need skills and training in relation to assessing or measuring trauma? Do you wish to know more about trauma informed care or epigenetics or nutrigenomics? Do let us know what you require.
