What else do we do?

We send posters to A&E departments throughout the UK, twice yearly, to increase awareness of ectopic pregnancy, which is sometimes overlooked when a diagnosis is being made.

To increase knowledge and awareness of ectopic pregnancy we have written a number of MCQs. These questions can be viewed and answered on-line. An explanation of the correct answers are given. After your answers are submitted you will receive an email certificate with your name and score which can be downloaded.

We run a course for gynaecologists on the diagnosis and laparoscopic management of ectopic pregnancy, which provides hands-on experience in laparoscopic techniques. I have written an objective structured assessment of technical skills (OSATS) for the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists on ectopic pregnancy. This will be used by the RCOG as part of a skills module. We also encourage research in ectopic pregnancy.

The ectopic pregnancy foundation aims to raise awareness in medical students of this condition.  We have established two essay prizes:

The Lawson Tait Prize

The first is the Lawson Tait prize in gynaecology.  This is open to all final year medical students at Imperial College London.

The 2014 winner was Emily Hutchinson. Her winning essay can be found here:
