Obstetrical Simulation Course: Emergencies & Catastrophes Course Description
This two-day course will incorporate didactic presentations and hands-on simulations that focus on developing an understanding of the high risk, low frequency obstetrical emergencies. It encompasses team training using the TeamSTEPPS® model for shoulder dystocia, postpartum hemorrhage, eclamptic seizure, magnesium toxicity and maternal code. There are also five task training stations: operative vaginal delivery, Bakri balloon and uterine compression suture techniques, giving bad news to a patient and her family and appropriate documentation of a shoulder dystocia delivery note. Participants will be grouped into 5 groups of 10 and rotate as a group through the team simulations on day 1 and the task training stations on day 2. Twenty-five scholarships are available for each conference to Family Practice and Family Medicine physicians, Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs), who serve the rural populations in the Southeast. The courses are limited to 50 slots each, so please register as soon as possible.
