Interactive eLearning Implementation Series
The Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) Program is pleased to announce and share its series of AIM eModules. The AIM eModules have been designed to be interactive and collaborative. Each AIM eModules will focus on the implementation of the ‘4 R’ domains: Readiness, Recognition, Response, and Reporting of each maternal safety bundle.
The goal of the Readiness domain is to outline the 5 components of Readiness to be addressed by every facility to prevent delays and prepare for the optimal management of obstetric hemorrhage cases
The goal of the Recognition domain is to identify the key factors for assessment of hemorrhage risk upon admission, describe quantitative measurement of blood loss and outline key strategies for active management of the 3rd stage of labor.
The goal of the Response domain is to identify the two key interventions that should be utilized in every hemorrhage, define a management plan for response to obstetric hemorrhage emergencies and describe support needed for every individual involved in an obstetric hemorrhage emergency
The goal of the Reporting and Systems Learning domain is to describe how a culture of huddles and post event debriefs can demonstrate successes and review how multidisciplinary quality improvement and review of serious hemorrhages can improve outcomes
The goal of the Recognition domain is to review standardized measurement and assessment strategies for women with hypertension in pregnancy and to discuss key principles in educating women and their families during the prenatal and postpartum periods
The goal of the Response domain is to identify the need for facility-wide standard protocols with checklists and escalation policies and outline patient, family and staff support for ICU admissions and serious complications of severe hypertension in pregnancy
The goal of the Readiness domain is to identify strategies to improve the culture of readiness that supports spontaneous onset and progression of labor and develops team knowledge and skills on approaches which maximize the likelihood of vaginal birth
The goal of the Recognition domain is to implement standardized admission criteria and evaluate protocols for timely identification of specific problems for patients who can benefit from proactive intervention before labor to reduce the risk for cesarean birth
The goal of the Response domain is to understand the need for an in-house care provider and identify the use of standardized, evidence-based labor techniques which provide support for intended vaginal births
The goal of the Readiness domain is to promote implementation of critical clinical practices to prevent delays and prepare for the optimal prevention and management of Maternal Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)
The goal of the Recognition domain is to emphasize that the routine screening of obstetric patients for venous thromboembolism risk factors will identify patients at high risk for thromboembolic events
The goal of the Response domain is to emphasize that when patients are identified as high risk for thromboembolism the response should be appropriate thromboprophylaxis based on risk factors and the clinical situation
