New and soon-to-be parents have many concerns and worries; the competency of their labor & delivery/obstetric team should not be one of them. They look to your care team for answers and trust the staff is effectively trained and fully confident to deliver the specialized maternal care needed as a new mother births her child into the world.
But the reality is that maternal mortality rates haven’t improved in 10 years, and the U.S. has the highest maternal mortality rate of any high-resource country.
HealthStream’s suite of maternal care specialty solutions provide effective, established and evidence-based education to your staff members to develop a competent and empowered maternal care team. With these nursing training tools, your staff learns which appropriate actions to take using newborn nursing diagnosis lists and how to effectively provide a tailored nursing plan for postpartum normal delivery for moms headed home from the hospital.
