    The goal of the Readiness domain is to outline the 5 components of Readiness to be addressed by every facility to prevent delays and prepare for the optimal management of obstetric hemorrhage cases.  
  • Obstetric Hemorrhage: Recognition
    The goal of the Recognition domain is to identify the key factors for assessment of hemorrhage risk upon admission, describe quantitative measurement of blood loss and outline key strategies for active management of the 3rd stage of labor.  
  • Obstetric Hemorrhage: Response
    The goal of the Response domain is to identify the two key interventions that should be utilized in every hemorrhage, define a management plan for response to obstetric hemorrhage emergencies and describe support needed for every individual involved in an obstetric hemorrhage emergency.  
  • Obstetric Hemorrhage: Reporting and Systems Learning
    The goal of the Reporting and Systems Learning domain is to describe how a culture of huddles and post event debriefs can demonstrate successes and review how multidisciplinary quality improvement and review of serious hemorrhages can improve outcomes.
