Run emergency obstetric skills and drills training

This is one of the recommendations from the ‘departmental’ section of the RCOG/RCM undermining toolkit.

Run emergency obstetric skills and drills training

Emergency obstetric skills and drills training is mandatory in all departments and delivered locally. These courses are evolving to include human factors training to improve patient safety and can reinforce how undermining is perceived within teams and how it can be reduced.

Drills and simulation exercises should be reinforced and encouraged as improved teamwork is unquestionably a side effect of rehearsal, endorsing that sustained repeated practice is essential for expertise.
