UOG Faculty Learn Lifesaving Skills to Control Postpartum Hemorrhaging
University of Guam nursing faculty were trained on the techniques of Helping Mothers
Survive Bleeding After Birth on August 10.
The University’s School of Health participated in a course teaching lifesaving skills on managing and controlling excessive postpartum bleeding.
Perinatal Rescue Network Clinical Instructor Ginnie Kim conducted the training with UOG Associate Professor of Nursing Dr. Kathryn Wood and Instructor James Finch. Kim volunteers with the Guam Seventh Day Adventist Clinic, and with support from the organization, she was able to provide the training to the University.
With their newfound knowledge, Wood and Finch plan to train nurses and health providers in outer island communities and in the region.
