Bryan Health Recognized by ACCME for Innovative OB Simulation Training Collaboration

Hemorrhage is a leading cause of maternal death within 42 days of the end of pregnancy, yet many of these deaths are preventable. Rural areas suffer 64 percent more maternal loss than urban areas. Recognizing the need for real-life training, Bryan Health, the Heartland Health Alliance (HHA​) and Bryan College of Health Sciences piloted an OB simulation training under the leadership of Benjamin Byers, DO, Center for Maternal and Fetal Care. The goal: to educate OB care teams in recognizing and reacting to pregnancy-related complications.

High-tech OB simulation training educates OB teams, improves quality of rural health care

In the U.S., hemorrhage is a leading cause of maternal death within 42 days of the end of pregnancy, yet many of these deaths are preventable. While not all cases involve postpartum hemorrhage, the risk of excessive bleeding after childbirth is concerning enough that health care providers need to be thoroughly prepared at all times. Recognizing that the need for real-life training is especially great in rural areas, where the maternal death rate is up to 64 percent higher than it is in urban areas, Bryan Health and the Heartland Health Alliance (HHA) piloted an OB simulation training program in 2018. The goal: to educate OB care teams, including family physicians who deliver babies, in recognizing and reacting to pregnancy-related complications.
