L&D Team Communications Resources

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) indicate that inadequate communications between providers or between providers and patients/families is the root cause of 60% to 70% of investigated sentinel events in medicine.  When 47 perinatal deaths were investigated by JCAHO, poor communication was identified as the root cause in 72% of these adverse events.

One of the most common challenges experienced by labor & deliver management is maintaining efficient communications between team members, while consolidating a wide range of skill sets and personalities into a cohesive, effective unit.  Here are a few information resources that may help you meet this challenge.  Please feel free to suggest more.
