    Improving Safety & Outcomes in the Delivery Suite: The Role of Human Factors


    In the last Confidential Enquiry, the vast majority of direct maternal deaths were considered to have involved an element of substandard care; with teamwork, communication and interpersonal skills failures as areas of particular concern. These weaknesses result not just in increased mortality, but also significant morbidity and economic losses, with malpractice claims in obstetrics and gynaecology representing half of the UK NHS litigation bill over the last ten years.

    The social skills of communication, team-working and leadership and the cognitive skills of situational awareness and decision-making are considered to be key ‘non- technical skills’ (NTS). Such skills are of particular relevance to the acute maternity care team on the Delivery Suite, where multiple tasks are often required simultaneously, the woman is usually awake, and the clinical circumstances may be complex and stressful.

    This exciting and innovative one-day course will provide an introduction to the NTS and how we may develop them in relation to our everyday practice as busy professionals. It is suitable for all clinical staff with an interest in the Delivery Suite (e.g. midwives, anaesthetists, obstetricians) and legal professionals and will include:
    • Key domains to discuss- situation awareness, team-working, decision making, leadership, stress and fatigue, relations with the mother and her partner.
    • How do we identify non-technical skills?
    • How do we improve non-technical skills?
    • Multidisciplinary workshops
    • Implications for clinical practice

    Part funded places are available for £95 and include lunch.
