COPE online training

COPE is committed to supporting health professionals to have access to appropriate training.

Training in basic skills in perinatal mental health

A Training Matrix was developed that outlines key components of knowledge and skills required to undertake screening and management of perinatal mental health disorders.  The Matrix reflects expertise required at basic, intermediate and advanced levels, and provides those developing programs with a framework to assist with preparation of courses and curriculum.  The Matrix is also used to inform the development of free online training for health professionals.

Future online training

We are currently in the process of developing a series of new online training programs so support health professionals.  These will focus on the areas of perinatal loss and birth trauma and will become available in 2019.

To register your interest and be notified once these become available, you can sign up to the COPE Health Professionals Register.
