The Perinatal Outreach Program at Overland Park Regional Medical Center is intended to provide professional education and consultative services to perinatal care providers and nurses in the surrounding area.

At Overland Park Regional Medical Center, we strive to provide better health outcomes through systematic improvements in health promotion, illness and injury prevention for infant and mother. Our goal is to enhance learning and growth by promoting and advocating for a consistent standard of care throughout the region.

Our Classes

Intermediate Fetal Monitoring

This comprehensive 2-day instructor-led course, revised in 2017, is critical for enhancing and validating nurses and physicians' ability to interpret and respond to fetal heart monitoring tracings. May be used to support preparation for certification examinations.

Skills taught and knowledge assessed include:

  • Maternal and fetal physiology
  • Interpretation of fetal and uterine monitor tracings
  • Evaluation of auscultated fetal heart sounds
  • Leopold's Maneuvers
  • Placement of fetal spiral electrodes and intrauterine pressure catheters
  • Evaluation of and strategies for enhancing communication

The course is presented to approximately 15,000 clinicians annually and may be used to validate knowledge and skills of perinatal clinicians who utilize fetal monitoring in the intrapartum setting.

STABLE

  • Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention and recall of information, S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessment and care modules in the program: 2Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support. A seventh module, Quality Improvement, stresses communication and teamwork as well as the professional responsibility of evaluating care provided to sick infants, with the ultimate goal of improving future care.
  • First introduced in 1996 in the US and Canada, S.T.A.B.L.E. has grown internationally to include instructor training and courses in more than 45 countries. Currently, there are more than 4,400 registered instructors worldwide and more than 561,383 neonatal healthcare providers have completed a S.T.A.B.L.E. Learner course.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) course conveys an evidence-based approach to care of the newborn at birth and facilitates eeffective team-based care for healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery. NRP utilizes a blended learning approach, which includes online testing, online case-based simulations, and hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focus on critical leadership, communication, and team-work skills.

Maternal Transport

Medical transportation for mom and baby — keeping them safe and together. The Maternal Transport Team (MMTT) consists of high-risk perinatal obstetrical nurses, critical care paramedics and EMTs. These professionals have the expertise to safely transport women experiencing serious complications while pregnant or immediately after giving birth to a facility that can meet their needs. Located at Overland Park Regional Medical Center, the MMTT works in partnership with an area ambulance service provider to offer critical care OB transport to referring hospitals in the region.
