The Fall 2022 Step Up Together Drills and Skills Cycle focuses on shoulder dystocia and neonatal resuscitation, initiating emergency newborn transport from community birth settings (birth center, home) to a hospital for higher level care, and designing and managing processes to learn from sentinel or unusual events.
