Over 35 perinatal teams came together last month for PQCNC’s face to face learning session to collaborate and share their experiences related to implementation of the AIM hemorrhage bundle. The day was full of education focused on specific bundle elements ranging from risk assessment, patient engagement, debriefs and an interactive EBL station which garnered lots of discussion and information sharing. Teams were fortunate to have Gene Hobbs, a Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) from the University of North Carolina, conduct an actual obstetric hemorrhage simulation using audience participants including the role of patient and family member. Providing an immediate debrief with the participants and the audience allowed Gene to share his expertise regarding various ways to tailor simulations to any environment. He highlighted how education through simulation can occur anywhere, at any time, and high fidelity equipment is not necessary to be successful. Attendees were given resources outlining a myriad of quick, easy drills to perform each month that enhance simulation and communication techniques for teams as well as a step-by-step guide on how best to support and partner with family members during the crisis of their loved one.
