Event description

Description

This RCM-approved study day for clinical skills trainers, obstetricians, midwives, and paramedics will provide an engaging and interactive update on professional skills to facilitate physiological breech births, planned or unexpected, and how to teach these skills to others. The focus is on collaborative, multi-professional working to improve the safety of vaginal breech birth using the skills of all maternity care professionals.

Training will include:

* A research update

* Thorough theoretical and hands-on explanations of how breech babies journey through the maternal pelvis in a completely spontaneous birth (the breech mechanisms), enabling you to distinguish between normal progress and dystocia

* Hands-on simulation of complicated breech births and resolutions, using narratives and videos of real breech complications, to enable you to practice problem-solving in real time

* Models of breech care that work within modern maternity services

* One year's access to video resources following the training

Registration begins at 10:00 for a prompt 10:15 start. The Innovation Centre is located near Medical Records on the hospital grounds. Tea and coffee will be provided. Parking is available on the hospital grounds. No refunds can be issued within 1 month of the event, but you are welcome to send someone else in your place.




Feedback from study days in Christchurch & Auckland, October 2016:

My main concern was lack of training of staff leading them to believe that breech birth is an emergency. Our RMOs and MWs loved the day and I think feel more empowered. -- SMO (Consultant Obstetrician, Senior Medical Officer)

Thank you so much, this has been the best study day ever! -- Midwife

Information was clear and concise and well presented. Myths dispelled and physiological VBB and when to intervene very clearly explained. Methods to resolve when there are issues during delivery explained and demonstrated. Clear examples given with supporting video and photographs. Extremely valuable. -- RMO (Registered Medical Officer)

Honest, real explanations. How to intervene in a timely manner as opposed to be hands off the breech. -- Midwife

Thank you for a brilliant day of teaching and training. You covered a lot of material not taught as part of our training and it has been valuable. -- RMO

Learning about manoeuvres to use in upright position, eg. shoulder press; visual components have been amazing, the broken down physiology of a breech birth. -- Midwife



Facilitators:

  • Dr Shawn Walker, RM

Shawn Walker, RM, MA is a UK midwife who researches how professionals learn skills to safely facilitate breech births. Clinically, she has worked in all midwifery settings – labour wards, freestanding and alongside birth centres, and home births. She led the development of a breech clinic pathway at the James Paget University Hospital (2012-2014), where she worked as a Breech Specialist Midwife. Her research focus on breech birth is part of a wider interest in complex normality – working with obstetric colleagues to enable women at moderate and high risk to birth and bond physiologically where possible. She currently works as a Teaching Fellow at Kings College London, in addition to periodic teaching, consultancy and breech support across the UK and internationally.

  • Emma Spillane, RM

Emma Spillane, RM is the Lead Midwife for the Carmen Birth Suite alongside midwifery unit at St. George's Hospital, London. She is currently leading the development of a breech care pathway and completing her Masters at City University London.
