Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists 2022 Annual Clinical Meeting

OB/GYN Hospital Medicine: Establishing a Foundation for Safe Quality Care

The Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists is a national leader in safe, high-quality, equitable reproductive healthcare. We have championed reproductive rights by signing on to over twenty Amicus briefs for the Supreme Court, to decrease maternal mortality, improve access to care and safeguard abortion rights.

We have and will continue to actively speak out against laws that interfere with the medical decision making between a patient and her physician or midwife. These complex and sometimes heart wrenching decisions should be made individually, based on medical facts and the pregnant person’s needs, not broad political agendas.
Our SOGH 2022 Annual Clinical Meeting: OB/GYN Hospital Medicine: Establishing a Foundation for Safe Quality Care, scheduled to take place September 10-14 in San Antonio*, will once again offer both virtual and in-person options for participation. We will focus on cutting edge knowledge in our field and the hands-on skills training that you have come to expect. We are providing new simulation training this year for the management of septic abortion.

We look forward to seeing you. Join us in our mission to provide the best care to women and pregnant persons.

OB Emergencies

The OB Emergencies course will cover 3 OB Emergency scenarios. Registrants of the OB Emergencies simulation session will rotate between all 3 scenarios.

Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE, aka Anaphylactoid Syndrome of Pregnancy) with Obstetric Hemorrhage and DIC.
This simulation will address the presentation, differential diagnosis and management of AFE based on evidence-based guidelines.  Concomitant management of massive obstetric hemorrhage and DIC will also be taught.  The learner will gain confidence in managing these rare but serious complications.

Maternal Cardiac Arrest with underlying hypertension and resultant complications:
This simulation will involve a maternal cardiac arrest.  Learners will work as a team and participate in a code blue on an obstetric patient. The underlying etiology of hypertension in pregnancy that can lead to cardiac arrest and other serious complications will be covered in detail.   CPR BLS or ACLS are not required for this course but may be helpful.

Elective Abortion with infection leading to Sepsis:
An elective termination of pregnancy is usually uncomplicated, but as with any procedure there can be complications.   Learners will work up and manage infectious complications of elective abortion.  Sepsis tools, management and treatment will be covered in detail. 

Operative Vaginal Delivery and Shoulder Dystocia

Registrants of this course will rotate between both Operative Vaginal Delivery and Shoulder Dystocia stations.

Operative Vaginal Delivery:
A hands on workshop to learn and/or review and practice your vacuum and forceps skills.  The Vacca 5 Step method of Vacuum delivery will be taught in this course.

Shoulder Dystocia:
A hands on workshop with individual instruction on shoulder dystocia maneuvers. 

Train the Trainer

This course covers the basics of creating and implementing simulations in your institution. This is a small, interactive course that includes TeamStepps.
*This course is a prerequisite for the Advanced Train the Trainer Master Class breakout session at the ACM.

Afternoon Workshop Descriptions

Monday, September 12th Afternoon Workshop Options

*Please note, these sessions run concurrently. You will be prompted to select your workshop option for each afternoon when completing the meeting registration form.

Opioid Use Disorder Programs

Competency in the clinical management of patients with opioid use disorder is a fundamental to the practice of obstetrics and gynecology. We will review clinical management strategies that can be used in both the inpatient and outpatient setting to initiate medications for opioid use disorder and clinical approaches to pain management, co-morbidity screening and evaluation, and medication management that can be used to ensure evidence-based approaches to caring for this population during pregnancy and the postpartum period.

Care for the Caregiver

The Value of Peer Support is an Interactive Workshop for healthcare professionals. “Second Victims” are health care professionals who may experience emotional and/or physiological impact after an adverse event, medical error, unexpected outcome, or any stressful clinical event. The didactic section will provide knowledge of the second victim phenomenon and training on how to recognize and support colleagues following a stressful clinical event. The interactive portion will equip clinicians with the tools & resources to facilitate a supportive 1:1 conversation with affected colleagues that focusing on the emotional impact of the event.

Skills Stations

Tuesday, September 13th Afternoon Workshop Options

*Please note, these sessions run concurrently. You will be prompted to select your workshop option for each afternoon when completing the meeting registration form.

HOCUS POCUS! An OB/GYN’s Guide to the Magic of Point of Care Ultrasound

Learning Objectives are as follows:

  • At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
  • To become familiar with how to perform basic point of care ultrasound to structures outside the pelvis including the lungs, IVC, heart, & abdomen
  • To learn how to use POCUS to assess fluid status
  • To learn how to integrate POCUS into an OB/GYN’s clinical practice

Course Description:

  • “Want to know why your patient is desatting and if your patient has pulmonary edema vs atelectasis right away? Tired of waiting for several hours for an x-ray or even days for an echo? Learn how to perform point of care ultrasound on the lungs, heart, and assess fluid status to provide a dynamic, cost-effective, and efficient clinical assessment of your OB/GYN patient and improve patient care! As obstetrician gynecologists, we are excellent sonographers however often do not have much experience scanning patients outside of the abdomen and pelvis. This lecture will review how to perform basic point of care ultrasound to structures outside the pelvis including how to assess for pulmonary edema, atelectasis, fluid status, ejection fraction, and so much more! This lecture will also review how to integrate POCUS into an OB/GYN’s daily clinical practice. Please join to see the magic of point of care ultrasound!”

Train the Trainer Master Class: Detailed Exploration into Quality Improvement and Simulation Strategies

(Must have previously attended SOGH Train the Trainer simulation course at any prior ACM)

Train the Trainer Master Class will build upon concepts previously learned in the SOGH traditional Train the Trainer course. This interactive breakout session is hands on from start to finish. Participants will need a lap top to gain the optimal benefit from this experience. The breakout session will begin by walking participants step by step through creating low and high-fidelity simulations. Participants will learn how to create simulations on a budget and how to make their own simulation props. This course will guide learners through creating table top simulations using power point presentations, as well as, the creation of the virtual simulations as used by SOGH. We will explore the development of engaging simulations such as escape rooms that may be created in the physical environment and the virtual format. Next, we will discuss how building diversity, equity, inclusion and LGBTQ+ into your simulations enhances the educational experience of your learners. This results in comprehensive care of your patients. Lastly, we will review tips and tricks for facilitators, how to respectfully and empathically redirect conversations in the traumatized learner and other effective debriefing strategies.

Advanced Fetal Monitoring

(Available to virtual attendees)

OB Emergency Department Breakout Session

The Obstetric Emergency Department is an integral component of many Ob/Gyn Hospitalist programs. This course will supply attendees with the tools needed to stand up and sustain an OB ED in their institution. The course directors each have personal experience creating and running an OB ED and are eager share their hard-won knowledge. Specific topics covered will include:

  • Operational Stand Up: physical plant requirements, licensure, signage, DPH, patient experience.
  • Care pathways: facilitating standardized care and expansion of the Ob/Gyn attending, resident and labor nurse knowledge base to care for common ED presentations in pregnancy, collaboration with ED physicians, and guiding non-obstetric facilities through obstetric emergencies.
  • Effective documentation and billing: ED specific documentation that is efficient, complete and satisfies required elements for ED billing.
  • Optimizing opportunities for learners: how to take advantage of hands-on learning for medical students, Ob/Gyn and FP residents, CNM, nurses and attending providers, and ensuring admin is aware of this “value added” element of your program.
  • Commonly encountered barriers and challenges
  • Breakout opportunities for small group discussion: “ask the expert”
