Advanced Life Support In Obstetrics Course ( ALSO )

Course Accreditation:

American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)


Course Description:


The ALSO Provider Course is an evidence-based, inter-professional, and multidisciplinary educational training program designed to assist health professionals in developing and maintaining the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage the emergencies which arise in maternity care. The course includes required reading, lectures, and hands-on workstations. Evaluation is by a written exam and skills assessment stations. There are many appropriate ways of managing emergencies. The treatment guidelines presented in ALSO do not necessarily represent the only way to man­age problems and emergencies. Instead, these guidelines are presented as reasonable methods of management in obstetrical emergencies. Each maternity care clinician must ultimately exercise his or her own professional judgement in deciding on appropriate action in emergency situations.

ALSO promotes safety by teaching a standardized approach to obstetric emergency situations. Standard­ization is a key patient safety element that can reduce variation in practice and duplication of time and resources, and provide reliability of patient care proce­dures. Knowledge of the content, practice of manual skills, and use of mnemonics reduce the likelihood of error and the incidence of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality.


Course Objectives:

  • Discuss methods of managing pregnancy and birth urgencies and emergencies, which standardizes the skills of practicing maternity care providers.
  • Demonstrate content and skill acquisition as evidenced by successful completion of course examination, skills workstations, and group testing stations.
  • Provide safe team leadership through various emergency obstetric scenarios.
  • Demonstrate effective team communication strategies focusing on patient safety.


Target Audience:

This comprehensive course encourages a standardized team-based approach amongst physicians, residents, nurse midwives and other members of the maternity care team to improve patient safety and positively impact maternal outcomes.

Physicians, Residents, Nurse Midwives, other members of the Maternity Care Team
