Covid-19: managing an obstetric emergency

Date published:

Recognising that the Covid-19 pandemic provides new challenges for the safety of people receiving and providing maternity care, The Healthcare Improvement Studies Institute (THIS Institute) has undertaken a project, conducted in collaboration with the PROMPT Maternity Foundation, and involving a rapid-response consultation exercise to understand what good looks like for managing obstetric emergencies in women with suspected or confirmed Covid-19.

Over 100 participants with expertise in maternity care, infection prevention and control, and human factors took part in the consultation, enabled by THIS Institute’s research platform, Thiscovery. As a result of the project a video has been produced alongside related resources which features Tim Draycott, our Senior Clinical Advisor, Safety and Learning.

The video is available to view below and you can find out more about the project on the THIS Institute website on their dedicated webpage Covid-19: managing an obstetric emergency
