In Situ Simulation Training to Combat Maternal Hemorrhage

Figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that the maternal mortality rate has more than doubled since 1987, reaching an alarming high of 17.3 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births.

Trauma Care Symposium Provides Realistic Transitions of Care Training

Tony and Andrew Stimpson looked at their area’s training need holistically and wanted to offer a high-quality training event for all those involved in this most critical transition of care. They also felt deeply that they needed to provide real world exposure to the entire arc of care for all professionals that interact in these situations to improve communication–and ultimately care. They went to work recruiting care partners that might be able to help them put together a training offering and were able to provide a full day trauma symposium for free to medical personnel in their area.

Sharing the Wealth: Innovative Approach Tackles Labor and Delivery Challenges in Critical Access Hospitals

Rick Breuer had a problem. As the CEO of Community Memorial Hospital in Cloquet, Minnesota, Rick was keenly aware that the obstetrics practitioners at his smaller hospital weren’t able to attend to as many patients in his area as they would like. There were just too few high-risk cases to keep skills sharp, and Rick and the rest of the team wondered if they were really as prepared as they should be for what Rick termed “rare, terrifying events” like maternal hemorrhage. Read how Rick was able to work with Blue Cross/Blue Shield to fund the purchase of a RealMom Birthing Simulator to provide simulation-based labor and delivery training for his team and then share the model with other hospitals, either to emulate or to participate in the program.
