In this workshop you will learn:

  1. The 8 reasons why most hospitals start a new program
  2. How to establish a timeline, with planning and budgeting
  3. Implementation strategies for a successful and cost-effective hospitalist program, which increases both the safety and quality of maternal care
  4. How to recruit and hire the ideal hospitalist candidates
  5. Whether to do it yourself or hire a management company
  6. How to avoid common pitfalls and errors
  7. How to pay for the new program by establishing an OB ED

Essential Skills for Safe Operative Vaginal Delivery – Hands-on Course

Emmanuelle Pare, MD

This course will start with a one-hour lecture reviewing principles of safe operative vaginal delivery (forceps and vacuum).

For the hands-on portion, the participants will be divided in 3 groups and will spend 40 minutes practicing the essential skills for safe application and use of vacuum and 80 minutes (2 sessions of 40 minutes) practicing the BASIC essential skills for safe application and use of low and outlet forceps*.

Models used for the hands-on portion are the high-fidelity task trainer “Lucy and her Mum”

Max 8:1 participants to instructor ratio for the hands-on portion.

*This workshop is NOT designed to cover more advanced forceps such as rotation forceps, mid-forceps and Piper forceps.

Train the Trainer (Sims Course)

Julianne DeMartino, MD &
Stacy Norton, MD

Train the trainer is a didactic and hands-on program developed to provide participants with the basic fundamentals of quality improvement initiatives through the creation of safety bundles, checklists, simulation and team building skills.

This program will be divided into three interactive segments. The first session will focus on effective team building strategies. Teamwork principles including leadership, situational awareness, mutual support and effective communication skills will be explored. This presentation will be followed with a team building exercise.

The second portion of this program will assist participants in developing quality improvement projects through the exploration of the major causes of maternal morbidity and mortality, establishing goals for improvement, obtaining buy in, using safety bundles, checklists and simulation to advance patient safety within the participants’ home institutions.

Lastly, this program will come full circle by using low fidelity simulation as a means to test quality improvement proposals. Basic simulations and low fidelity simulation props, tips and tricks will be reviewed. Participants will be provided with a hands-on opportunity to develop and run their own simulations.

Bread & Butter Shoulder Dystocia / Operative Vaginal Delivery (Sims Course)

 Brook Thomson, MD & Don Toatley, MD Get great bang for your buck in this hands-on course using extremely life-like manikins to teach some of the most valuable skills a practitioner of obstetrics can possess. Learn tips and tricks to safely and effectively resolve a shoulder dystocia through correct application of maneuvers and team dynamics.  Understand proper indications and complications of operative vaginal delivery then practice proper techniques for the use of vacuums and forceps.  Whether you are just beginning or have many years under your belt there is something for everyone here.  24

OB Emergencies (Sims Course)

 

In this OB Emergencies Simulation Course, you will rotate through three simulations of critical importane to the OB/GYN Hospitalist in leading the unit.

Sepsis and Maternal Cardiac Arrest
Faculty: Pat Caplinger, MD & Carrie Johnson, MD

Sepsis is the leading cause of death in hospitals and the leading cause of hospital readmission

  • 15% of Maternal deaths in the US are attributable to sepsis
  • Mortality from sepsis increases by 8% every hour that treatment is delayed
  • Maternal survival after cardiac arrest >50%

Learn to accurately diagnose maternal sepsis and provide initial management and goal directed therapy. Obtain the skills, knowledge and confidence to lead a maternal cardiac arrest for-at least-the initial 10 minutes

Opioid Overdose & Postpartum Hemorrhage
Faculty: Eileen Reardon, MD & Lisbeth Jordan, MD

Opioid abuse in the obstetrical patient is a growing problem. In this simulation course, participants will work to understand the medical risk of opioid abuse to the mother and fetus, recognize and manage opioid overdose in the L&D and OBED setting and identify and treat etiologies of postpartum hemorrhage. The group will also practice effective teamwork skills and strategies during the management of these critical issues.

Intrapartum Management of the Second Twin
Faculty: Ed Ricaurte, MD & Colin Jackson, MD

As the prevalence of vaginal delivery of twins has increased over the years, it is crucial for the Hospitalist to be informed, prepared, and fully equipped to successfully carry out this method of delivery. In this simulation course, participants will review delivery options, discover management options and practice techniques and maneuvers for vaginal delivery of the second twin.
