Well, we are just about to trial a newborn assessment simulation using sim-baby.  We using the context of getting a new mom and healthy newborn ready for discharge.  We are going to start using it this week.  I will be happy to send it along after we work a few kinks out!

We are implementing simulation into our lab and this next quarter is our mother/baby rotation. I would be interested in seeing your newborn assessment if it is still available. Thanks in advance.

What are your objectives? Do you want the students to do the initial assessment immediately after birth (with Apgar etc) or are you thinking of the first head to toe or do you want the newborn to be having a problem?

All sorts of possibilities : )

You have read my mind! I, too, am looking for simulation scenarios to run at our Community College. There are just NOT enough clinical placements for us at the local hospital so we have to become creative and utilize our sim labs. I would LOVE to see or hear about any scenarios that are OB related.

Thank you. Kim
