ROBuST: RCOG Operative Birth Simulation Training - Course Manual


 

Training in safe operative birth is a key priority in obstetrics. Around one in five women are dissatisfied with their labour and birth, especially operative birth, often because of poor communication or inadequate technical skills. This can lead to sexual dysfunction and aversion to further pregnancy, as well as increases in complaints and litigation. This book accompanies the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists' Operative Birth Simulation Training (ROBuST) course, and will be an essential resource for all obstetricians and maternity care providers. Internationally recognised contributors discuss all aspects of operative birth including: vacuum and forceps-assisted birth, Caesarean section at full dilatation, safe and effective practice of Kielland's forceps, essential non-technical skills, teamwork, and medico-legal aspects. A simple-to-use flowchart is included to guide the reader through the essential steps for a successful operative vaginal birth. Each chapter identifies the key learning points and provides step-by-step instructions for performing each technique.
