Labor and Delivery Simulation Courses

Patient safety, teamwork and crisis resource management

Patient safety is an integral component of healthcare and many efforts are underway to reduce medical errors and injuries and malpractice claims that result from them. Obstetrical and surgical adverse events often involve failures of team performance. The increasingly high cost of obstetrical malpractice claims has made patient safety and error reduction priorities for loss prevention interventions, with a focus on interventions that improve teamwork and communication.

Labor and Delivery clinicians can improve their skills in managing and debriefing routine and critical clinical events; managing difficult conversations and disclosure and apology for adverse clinical events. There is now a well publicized need to facilitate a culture of safety, creating an environment that is more open to discussion of medical errors and how team performance can mitigate such errors. By providing training, reflection and deliberate practice in these areas, the courses in Crisis Resource Management for Labor and Delivery clinicians addresses these needs that are not provided in any other venue.

The Labor and Delivery Crisis Resource Management courses are originally designed for interprofessional Labor and Delivery teams including obstetrical nurses, midwives, obstetricians and anesthesiologists.

We are very pleased to announce that the Center for Medical Simulation's Learning Teamwork and Crisis Resource Management (CRM) for Labor and Delivery Clinicians and Improving Teamwork and Crisis Resource Management (CRM) for Labor and Delivery Clinicians (both the introductory and the advanced courses) are now approved to meet the ABOG Part IV Improvement in Medical Practice requirements for 2015-2017.

Beginning in 2015, ABOG MOC standards now allow participation in ABOG-approved Simulation Courses to meet the annual Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV) MOC requirement. Please review the 2015 ABOG MOC Bulletin for further information.
