Emergency Obstetric Care for Doctors and Midwives
USAID / MNH: JHPIEGO Corporation, last updated 24 August 2006

The course follows a symptom-based approach to the management of life-threatening obstetric emergencies, as described in the reference manual recommended for the course (see Components of the Emergency Obstetric Care Learning Resource Package in Overview). The main topics in this training course and the reference manual (MCPC) are arranged by symptom (e.g., vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy is how someone with unsafe abortion will present, convulsions is how a patient with eclampsia presents, shock is how someone with severe postpartum hemorrhage presents). The emphasis in this course is on rapid assessment and decision-making and clinical action steps based on clinical assessment with limited reliance on laboratory or other tests, suitable for district hospital and health centers in low resource settings.

This clinical training course is designed to prepare participants to manage obstetric emergencies and work effectively as members of an EmOC team. The course begins with a 5-week block at a designated training site and focuses on the development, application and evaluation of knowledge and skills; the first two weeks take place in the classroom and weeks three, four and five in designated clinical sites, which should be as close to the classroom as possible. The first five weeks are followed immediately by a 3-month self-directed practicum at the participant’s worksite, during which the clinical trainers for the course provide at least two follow-up visits for mentoring and further evaluation.
