“Safe Childbirth” program
Pregnancy and childbirth-related complications are difficult to predict and require swift action. It is extremely important to have properly trained obstetricians, neonatologists and midwives on duty in emergency situations that threaten the life of the mother and her child. According to global surveys, practical exercises run on advanced childbirth phantoms that simulate challenging clinical situations shorten the learning curve and improve the manual skills of physicians and medical personnel. Such training is extremely important for preventing childbirth complications, which are a growing cause of claims reported by patients.
The “Safe Childbirth” program covered the creation of the Obstetric Simulation Center (renovation and fitting of rooms), the purchase of specialist simulators, the creation of training programs and the preparation of the Center’s teaching personnel.
Currently, the Center trains doctors, midwives and nurses, among other professionals. Its instructors include obstetricians, perinatologists and neonatologists associated with the Warsaw Medical University’s Health Center for Women and Newborns.
Thanks to PZU’s involvement, the Center has been equipped among others with a High Faithfulness Childbirth Room offering the most technologically advanced phantom of Lucie, a woman giving birth, which allows for simulating both normal and complicated childbirth.
