MORE-OB for Moms and Babies at Soldiers’

11/26/2007 12:00:00 AM

The Birthing and New Family Services team at Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital has launched an ambitious new three-year project called MORE-OB. It stands for Managing Obstetrical Risk Efficiently.


Doctors, mid-wives, nurses, respiratory therapists and other team members complete learning modules, workships and skills drills together. MORE-OB was created by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada to focus on team functioning and communication and to make patient safety and satisfaction a priority.


“The MOREOB program will help tighten relationships within our entire program at Soldiers’,” explains RN Kory Whitlow. “Our patients will notice that doctors, nurses, anaesthesiologists and all unit staff are focused on providing them with the best possible care.”


In the three year MOREOB program, staff participate in workshops and education sessions that provide hands-on skills training, problem solving exercises and discussion.
