Improving patient safety
Simulation has gathered increasing acceptance over the years as an integral part of healthcare training and as a fundamental approach to help improve patient safety. In the field of obstetrics, it has been identified from a broad range of research into suboptimal patient outcomes that common contributory factors include: confusion in roles and responsibilities; lack of cross monitoring; failure to prioritise and perform clinical tasks in a structured, coordinated manner; poor communication and lack of organisation support.
Preventing adverse outcomes during birth
Simulation training is unique in its ability to facilitate effective team training. By bringing together multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals in a simulation to rehearse both common birthing scenarios and emergency critical incidents; the early recognition of birth complications, correct diagnosis and rapid, coordinated action from the delivery team can be perfected for improved outcomes.
