Shoulder dystocia (SD) is an obstetrical emergency. Even when managed appropriately, it can result in maternal or fetal injury. Part 2 begins at the moment of diagnosis, providing a review of SD maneuvers and interventions, and suggesting strategies for reducing risk. These strategies are drawn from medical literature, professional guidelines and claims data.
Pre-and Post-test results are provided to diplomate and an evaluation survey is issued upon completion of the course. A follow-up post-activity survey is also issued 3-4 months after completion that asks what practice changes have been made.
