Project: Research

Project Description

Post-partum haemorrhage (PPH) remains the leading cause of maternal death globally, with between 5 and 15% incidence in Australia1,4. Inter-professional simulation training for qualified midwifery and medical teams has been shown to improve knowledge and skills required during the management of PPH, leading to improved patient safety and ensuring better outcomes for mothers and babies2, 3. This research project will explore the benefits of an inter-professional simulation session for undergraduate midwifery and medical students. In particular, the clinical knowledge and development of teamwork, communication, problem solving and self-efficacy when caring for a woman with a PPH in inter-professional teams.
