Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics

Hold an ALSO® One-Day Provider Course

A new one-day blended classroom course format is available for Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO). This newly evolved course is an evidence-based interprofessional training program that prepares members of the entire maternity care team to better manage obstetric emergencies through standardized approaches to care. This comprehensive course encourages team-based learning amongst physicians, residents, nurse midwives, and registered nurses in order to improve patient safety and positively impact maternal outcomes.

Learners will successfully complete required online course elements at their own pace prior to attending the one day live portion of the course. The live portion of the course then provides multiple hands-on opportunities for learners to practice their skills and apply what they have learned. This is accomplished by rotating learners through interactive group case study workstations, in situ skills workstations, and simulated hands-on group testing scenarios throughout the day. Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be awarded ALSO provider status for the period of two years.

Need Mannequins?

Not every program has access to obstetric teaching mannequins, that's why ALSO offers an affordable rental program. Contact us for more information.
