How does your donation help?
We collect support to organise simulation training for critical childbirth conditions in eight maternity departments in Estonia.
The training is based on an interactive simulation manikin (Victoria), capable of responding to the actions of the care personnel. The participants practice real-life situations that require perfect coordination of team actions to provide the best birthing care. The trainings are video-recorded to facilitate subsequent self-analysis and feedback for the participants – all to refine the skills as best as possible.
In order to provide the training, the team will travel to the respective maternity hospital/department so that the personnel can stay in their normal working environment.
The trainers belong to the simulation training team of the Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital; they have been educated by Finnish and Danish instructors and have provided previous training on critical neonatal conditions to the personnel of maternity hospitals throughout Estonia.
We intend to collect €25,000 over a period of two years. This amount would enable us to provide maternal resuscitation training to the personnel of eight maternity hospitals. It would also cover the expenses of transporting the training team to the respective hospital and back.
- A recurring donation of €5 contributes to the transport of the training team to a nearby hospital.
- A recurring donation of €10 contributes to the transport of the training team to a more distant hospital.
- A nice way to think about the recurring donation of €25 is that, in one year, the collected amount would fully cover the cost of training one medical staff member!
In total, we train 100 medical staff members in 8 hospitals.
