DESCRIPTION:

Despite advances in Maternal-Fetal Medicine and a focus on quality and patient safety, there is are striking statistics that keep many obstetric providers up at night--rates of maternal mortality and severe morbidity are on the rise in the United States.  At least half of maternal deaths are thought to be preventable. As a result of these alarming statistics, clinical experts have come together to develop strategies to help decrease maternal morbidity and mortality.

As leaders and experts in high-risk pregnancies, SMFM has developed this course to help further obstetrical providers’ knowledge and promote a standardized approach to care for the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality: postpartum hemorrhage, venous thromboembolism, and severe hypertension. Drawing from strategies developed and promoted by the National Partnership for Maternal Safety and the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health, SMFM designed this course to provide you an opportunity for an immersive learning experience covering these maternal obstetric emergencies. Through hands-on simulation, participants will have the chance to practice technical skills, clinical emergency management, and teamwork skills in a safe environment. In addition to participating in hands-on simulation training, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about bringing simulation opportunities to their clinical environment and to review current national recommendations for optimizing the management of these obstetric emergencies through standardization and bundle implementation.
