MEAC Continuing Education Units
This four day intensive seminar, Expect the Unexpected™: Midwives Handling Complications in Out-Of-Hospital Settings, worth 36 MEAC ACCREDITED CEU HOURS, gives interactive and hands-on training for midwives on successfully handing complications in the Antepartum, Intrapartum, Postpartum and Newborn Periods, including pharmacology, laboratory testing, and working collaboratively to optimize home to hospital transports.
Learners will prepare for the unexpected by being trained to anticipate complications and react swiftly and decisively, using role playing with clinical models. Instruction will build learner’s complex competencies in psycho motor skills, communication and clinical decision making skills plus evidence-based knowledge needed to perform these skills. Objective Structured Clinical Evaluations (OSCE) stations will be utilized for skills acquisition and verification simulation models, and written tests will cement learning.
