Effect of a cluster randomised team training intervention on adverse perinatal and maternal outcomes: a stepped wedge study.

Romijn A, Ravelli A, de Bruijne MC, et al. BJOG : an international journal of obstetrics and gynaecology. 2019;126:907-914.

This cluster-randomized trial examined whether a team training intervention would improve perinatal and maternal outcomes for singleton births without congenital abnormalities, on or after 32 weeks gestation. Researchers found no significant change in incidence of adverse outcomes, suggesting that simulation-based training alone is not sufficient to optimize perinatal safety.
