Facilitating Smooth Transports: Train-the-Facilitator

Instructor: Gina Gerboth, CPM

Facilitating Smooth Transports is a four hour, in-person workshop designed for community midwives and Emergency Services Personnel to learn skills to assist with emergency home (or birth center)-to-hospital transports. Because each locale has unique practice conditions, you, as trained facilitators, will tailor the workshop to meet the needs of your community. Conducting this interprofessional educational opportunity in your community will develop trust and respect between the midwifery and medical communities, improve transport experiences and, ultimately, improve safety, outcomes, and client satisfaction. This course, Facilitating Smooth Transports: Train-the-Facilitator will equip you to lead the community-based workshop.

This course is approved for 8 MEAC continuing education contact hours. After completing this course, qualified individuals will be able to teach the Facilitating Smooth Transports workshop in their own communities.
