Simulation Education Program

Impacting Outcomes through Simulation
When an unexpected high-risk delivery occurs, both timing and proper training play key roles in outcomes for the newborn and mother. The Women's Hospital provides on-site simulation trainings for both instances.

Simulated medical experiences lead to improved staff confidence and knowledge retention due to hands on experiences, ultimately increasing patient safety. 

Excellence in Medical Education
We are proud to positively impact maternal and neonatal outcomes by offering The Women’s Hospital Simulation Education Program. Our innovative approach to
high-risk education leads to improved staff confidence and knowledge retention. Our purpose is to impact outcomes and be the premiere resource for obstetrical and neonatal simulation training. We are here to meet the needs of health care providers in Southern Indiana and the surrounding tristate.  

On-site simulation training sessions are designed to focus on the care and resuscitation of the newborn and/or mother depending on your needs. High-fidelity manikins are used to provide a safe environment in your hospital, allowing your healthcare professionals to practice high acuity, low frequency events.

Goals of the Simulation Education Program
  • Complete an on-site assessment and develop customized trainings according to the specific needs and goals of the health care facility.
  • Implement evidence-based practices that result in improved outcomes for high risk obstetrical needs and newborns who require resuscitation and stabilization.
  • Utilize high-fidelity manikins to provide a safe learning environment where health care providers can practice and discuss concerns related to:
• Precipitous delivery
• Shoulder Dystocia
• Closed Abruption
• Cord Prolapse
• Eclamptic Seizure
• Postpartum Hemorrhage

• Infant Stabilization
• Very Low Birth Weight Infant
• Hypovolemic Infant
• Depressed Infant

Fee Information
No fee for on-site simulation education sessions.
Thanks to generous funding for simulation manikins provided by the Deaconess Foundation
