Abstract

Background
High-fidelity simulation is integral to health professional training. The effect of interdisciplinary training on levels of confidence in obstetric emergencies is less well explored.

Aim
To evaluate the impact of a multidisciplinary training project in obstetric emergency skills and drills on the confidence of staff.

Methods
A mixed-methods approach was used to evaluate the self-reported confidence levels of obstetrics staff. A total of 69 staff voluntarily attended emergency skills and drills training with a birthing simulator manikin. The programme used four emergency scenarios that had potential for poor maternal outcomes. A debrief followed each scenario and confidence levels were self-reported before and after each training session.
