Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics

The course is full and registration is closed.

The ALSO Provider Course is an educational program designed to assist health professionals in developing and maintaining the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage the emergencies which arise in maternity care.

After completing the online module at least three days prior to the hands on module, participants will be prepared for a highly interactive day with five workstations to practice emergency simulations on shoulder dystocia, emergency breech delivery, postpartum hemorrhage, assisted vaginal delivery (vacuum), and maternal resuscitation. Discussions on Maternal Safety, Labor Dystocia and Preeclampsia/Eclampsia allow for group interaction with group testing to manage a variety of emergencies closing the day. Emphasis is given to improved communication, a shared mental model, and hands on practice as proven methods to reduce errors.
