Multi-professional simulation-based team training in obstetric emergencies for improving patient outcomes and trainees' performance

Fransen AF, van de Ven J, Banga FR, et al. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2020;12:Cd011545.

Teamwork training simulation programs can improve communication and safety culture in obstetric teams. This systematic review found that simulation-based obstetric team training can improve team performance and may improve some maternal and perinatal outcomes. The authors note that future research should attempt to limit bias, improve precision, and pay attention to effect measurement at the patient outcome level.
