Afternoon Workshop options are outlined in the table below.  Workshops will be at The Roosevelt with the exception of those designated as *OSC.





OB Emergencies Simulation Workshop (*OSC)     NOTE: This workshop time will be 2:30 - 6:00 p.m.
Faculty: SOGH Simulation Faculty
High fidelity scenarios designed to emphasize communication skills and team work principles for standard and complex obstetric emergencies.  Both novice and expert participants will learn and review core teamwork principles such as SBAR, closed loop communication, situational awareness and debriefing.  These principles will be practiced in high risk scenarios that may be faced by the OB hospitalist. Specific scenario objectives include:

  1. Review indications and techniques for safe vacuum assisted vaginal delivery
  2. Review maneuvers and present a sample strategy for management of shoulder dystocia

Train the Trainer (*OSC)
Faculty: SOGH Simulation Faculty
Train the Trainer is a didactic and hands-on course designed to enable participants to bring in-situ low fidelity simulation to their own L+D units. The focus is on providing the participant with tools to improve team communication while removing site specific barriers to effective response to emergencies.  Once finished with this course, the participant will have a framework to develop and run multidisciplinary scenarios for unit specific needs for maintenance and acquisition of skills. Specific objectives include:  
  1. Understand  how the teamwork principles of leadership, situational awareness, mutual support and communication can improve patient safety 
  2. Develop strategies to get buy- in from hospital leadership and staff to develop a program of regular simulation.
  3. Learn how to develop, run and debrief basic simulations using low fidelity tools on labor unit at home institution.
