Emergencies in Clinical Obstetrics (ECO) Course Description

Given the new focus on implementing patient safety programs in a comprehensive manner that includes hands-on simulation training and the mounting evidence that this can improve maternal and fetal outcomes, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has developed the Emergencies in Clinical Obstetrics (ECO) Course.

This course focuses on four common obstetric emergencies and includes evidence-based didactics and hands-on simulation stations that emphasize technical, teamwork, and communication skills for the following topics:
  1. Shoulder Dystocia
  2. Postpartum Hemorrhage
  3. Umbilical Cord Prolapse
  4. Breech Vaginal Delivery
Instructor Requirements
The primary course director must have attended a prior ECO course. The train-the-trainer ECO course is recommended.  The next ECO course will be administered on Tuesday, May 9th at the ACOG Annual Clinical & Scientific Meeting in San Diego, California.
Participant Objectives
By the end of this course, participants should be able to:
  • Describe evidence-based protocols for common obstetric emergencies
  • Demonstrate correct technique and performance of key responsibilities during simulated obstetric emergencies
  • Practice teamwork and communication for simulated cases complicated by shoulder dystocia, postpartum hemorrhage, umbilical cord prolapse and vaginal breech delivery
Completion Requirements
In order to receive continuing medical education (CME) and maintenance of certification (MOC) credit for the course:
The Course Director must:
  • Complete the online registration form, list the course date and location, and disclose accordingly
  • Complete and email the questionnaire to ACOG (to be sent after purchase)
  • Return the participant sign-in sheet to ACOG for participants to receive CME credit.
Participants must
  • Attend all didactic sessions
  • Successfully complete the simulation exercises demonstrating correct performance for each emergency
  • Successfully complete the ECO Posttest
CME Credit:  The course is approved for CME credit through ACOG.
MOC Credit:  Participants are also eligible for MOC Part IV credit from ABOG.
