    Thanks for posting about GNOSIS for Obstetrics - APS --- never heard this term before.

    GNOSIS for Obstetrics is one of the most prolific education and analytics platforms now engaging up to 15% of all OB clinicians in the U.S. This comprehensive program, is transforming how clinicians learn and how healthcare facilities use actionable data to improve quality and patient safety in the high-risk areas of obstetrics including:

    Fetal Assessment and Monitoring
    Shoulder Dystocia
    Obstetrical Hemorrhage
    Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy
    Hope one of our members can offer advice.

    I'm familiar with the program but haven't used it, so cannot answer your question, sorry.

    I would study the ACOG document Hypertension in Pregnancy - (sorry if that is not the exact title).

    Thanks for the memory jog as to what Gnosis is, NRSKarenRN.

    It seems that when my institution required these trainings, we had an opportunity to go back, review and update our answers. It was a learning process. Also, Gnosis identified areas where we needed more review and pointed us in that direction.

    Maybe I'm thinking of a different program - but what I remember is that it was not about acheiving a grade, but about learning current best practices, and reviewing and updating our knowledge base.

    A lot of facilities use it to demonstrate ongoing competencies for OB staff, which is required by TJC. It's easy because all the really pertinent competencies are covered by the modules, and it allows for gauging where a nurse's weak areas of knowledge are, and then tailoring their education to those areas.

    I looked into it for our hospital, but it's hella expensive ($16,000/year). We just don't have enough in our education budget for that, so we will continue to do EFM competency and then do an annual "skills day" for the others.

    For hypertensive emergencies of pregnancy, I would also recommend looking at the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative, they've got some great stuff. Actually, that website also thoroughly addresses PPH as well.
