A letter to our Bettercare community: changes in 2020

During this difficult year, we’ve had to make some important decisions that may affect you.

  • From September 2020, Bettercare is run entirely by part-time volunteers, so we can’t reply to all emails.
  • For common questions, please visit our community forum.
  • We are not currently able to provide exams and certificates.
  • We are no longer selling books directly. It is possible to order books printed for you as bulk orders.

Please read more here for further details.

Basic, simple to use, self study educational resources primarily in maternal and neonatal care that can be used at any level … used by thousands of health care workers in South Africa and beyond to improve their knowledge and skills.

My entire unit are doing the Newborn Care PEP learning programme … it has given them a lot more confidence working in the NICU. It has also been a bit of an eye opener for the midwives … It’s been good to update our knowledge and remind us of the things we’ve forgotten over the years.

We are determined that … every one of our maternity nurses must have completed the Maternal Care and Newborn Care courses.
