Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO) is a practical evidence based two-day interactive program designed to equip maternity workers with skills and knowledge that are required in handling obstetric emergencies.  We have a two-day Provider Course for all maternity care providers including physicians, midwives and registered nurses and other clinicians.  The mnemonics and mega-delivery work stations with mannequins make the program unique in teaching.  The program utilises the widely acclaimed humanistic training approach which involves the use of modules to ensure skills acquisition before a participant goes to the patient

Objectives          To discuss methods of managing pregnancy and birth emergencies which may help standardize the skills of practicing maternity care providers.          Demonstrate content and skills acquisition needed to effectively manage the emergencies
