This mixed method study explored if attendance at an obstetric emergency study day increased the participants' reported confidence levels when confronted with an obstetric emergency at a later date. Results from this research shows that the participants reported a significant increase in confidence and that this confidence was maintained for up to 8 months. Thematic analysis of free text comments and interviews identified confidence relied on good teamwork and communication, strong leadership and the presence and support from the midwife. Participants identified the need to maintain ongoing obstetric emergency training as knowledge diminished overtime. These findings support current literature in emergency training.
