Practice is essential to optimizing outcomes in obstetrics. Team practice encourages members of the team to work together, communicate, and anticipate the actions of other team members to achieve a common goal. While members of the labor and delivery team may practice and train as individuals, they rarely practice together to prepare for obstetric emergencies.
Practicing for Patients was designed to help labor and delivery units effectively conduct team-based training for simulated medical emergencies on their actual unit. Each of our program manuals offer extensive tools and resources that units can utilize to conduct team-based simulations for specific clinical conditions in order to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity.
