In this version of the video the trainee uses the SBAR model, which is very easily applied to a labour ward setting.
Situation – I have two women needing my simultaneous attention. I am going to need you to come in.
Background – There’s an instrumental delivery for a pathological CTG, followed by the details of the patient, her labour and the clinical assessment AND a patient needing a repeat FBS and the details also of this patient.
Assessment – The patient in room 6 will need assessing and a plan for delivery but I will be delayed doing the instrumental delivery.
Recommendation – Can you come in, assess room 6 while I do the instrumental, I should then be free if we need to go to theatre.
