PRONTO at Women Deliver 2019

Learn more about PRONTO at the upcoming Women Deliver Conference

PRONTO International is proud to be showcasing our worldwide impact and approach to improving outcomes during childbirth at the 2019 Women Deliver Conference June 3-6 in Vancouver, Canada. Join PRONTO at our side session or come visit us at our booth in the exhibition hall to learn more.

PRONTO’s Approach

PRONTO International aims to optimize care during birth. We develop and implement innovative training strategies that act as a catalyst for health care providers to make individual, team, and systems changes.

Well-trained health care providers require opportunities to practice skills in high-stress environments to ensure appropriate responses during an emergency. PRONTO’s approach to delivering simulation and team training for obstetric and neonatal emergency response in resource-limited settings moves one step closer to ensuring optimal and timely care for mothers and infants during life-threatening emergencies.

Our highly realistic simulations ask care teams to respond to, and manage emergency scenarios, and then engage in guided self-analyses of their performance through video assisted debriefing. PRONTO International has shown that the same concepts and techniques that have proven to be effective in transforming delivery of efficient and safe care for patients in high-resource settings can, and must, be applied to improve outcomes in low-resource settings. To make the training affordable and accessible, PRONTO uses low-cost portable materials.
