Leadership Skills and Comfort Measures for L&D Nurses (9CEs)   

This program aims to integrate coaching principles and skills, and labor support techniques into the practice of Labor and Delivery nurses. The objective of this integration is to allow nurses to provide patient- centered care and to confidently lead patients during their birth experiences towards a safe vaginal birth. Training nurses with effective coaching strategies increases their expertise in engaging and empowering the patient to be accountable for her healthy childbirth.  This will change your relationships with your patients: The care you’ll provide will rely not only on your knowledge in the field of obstetics, but first and foremost, on your ability to engage, inspire, and lead patients towards a safe and vaginal childbirth when possible. In situations in which safe vaginal birth is impossible to achieve, the coaching skills will allow you to facilitate flexibility, adjsutment, infromed concent and acceptance, which in turn will  result in patients’ high level of satisfaction of the birth experience.
