An Obstetrical Emergency Management Quality Improvement Project
MetadataShow full item record
Obstetrical emergencies occur in approximately 5 % of births necessitating immediate interventions to prevent catastrophic consequences. A knowledge deficit specific to obstetrical emergencies was the impetus for this project. The IOWA Model of Evidence Based Practice was utilized to develop a strategic plan that included the implementation of educational sessions and simulation drills to improve clinical knowledge, and team performance. Following didactic and simulation education, the obstetrical team demonstrated improved knowledge test and TEAM tool scores. Knowledge and performance improvement will be sustained with quarterly drills.
