Are We in Oz Yet? One Health System's Journey to High Reliability for OB Care

 
Date: Tuesday, February 18, 2020
Time: 2:00 p.m. ET
Duration:   1 hour
 

OB claims continue to be prevalent across the nation but more importantly carry the highest severity. Although all adverse outcomes cannot be prevented, the moral and economic ramifications involving OB claims are so great that understanding the basic tenets of a high reliability unit (HRU) is paramount to affect positive change in this area.
 
High reliability includes creating a culture and processes that radically reduce system failures and effectively respond when failures do occur. Creating, but more importantly sustaining, an obstetrics HRU takes diligence, standardization, and leadership support.

The webinar will discuss:
 
  • Specific clinical requirements and tactics for an OBHRU encompassing three areas: fetal assessment, labor management, and second stage labor care
  • Tools to mitigate clinical risks that the OB specialty manifests
  • Necessary monitoring to ensure the placed strategies remain effective
 
Please note: this webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
