Participants in this course can expect to increase their knowledge of best simulation and staff training practices to support the implementation and sustainability of the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) Obstetric Hemorrhage Bundle in their organizations and the complementary Practicing for Patients manual.
