Obstetric Readiness in Rural Facilities Without Birth Units
RHIhub (May 10, 2024) – The Rural Health Information Hub recently hosted a webinar on Obstetric Readiness in Rural Facilities without Birth Units. If you are interested and weren't able to attend, the PowerPoint slides and webinar recording are available online. Rural facilities that no longer provide planned maternity care face challenges in providing safe, high-quality services to pregnant, birthing and postpartum people who arrive needing care. Presenters shared innovative work that puts foundational skills, teamwork and equipment in place to be ready and responsive to patients' needs. This was the fourth in a webinar series on improving maternity care in rural health care settings.
