The third obstetric operation training session, hosted by the Chongqing Maternal and Child Hygiene Association and organized by the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (Women and Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University), or CQHCWC, was recently held in Southwest China's Chongqing.

Held simultaneously was the first obstetric training session of the basic surgery skills improvement project, which is also known as the "Juhuo Plan" and was launched by the National Health Commission to further improve basic surgeryskills, standardize the training system, and enhance professional abilities of clinical surgeons.

Attendees included Qi Hongbo, president of the CQHCWC, Zhou Wei and Li Fang, vice-presidents of the center, and Wang Xueyan, head of the Obstetrics First Department.

More than 100 representatives from over 50 hospitals in the city attended lectures, and more than 60 people participated in obstetric skills hands-on training and assessment.

Luo Qian, deputy chief of the Science and Education Department of the CQHCWC, gave a briefing on the background and purpose of the Juhuo Plan, noting that the center would organize more obstetric skills training sessions this year, covering at least 20 medical institutions and more than 200 obstetric medical workers.

Qi emphasized that, being among the country's first group of basic surgery skills improvement project (obstetric) provincial-level bases, the CQHCWC would offer standardized basic obstetric skills operation training and guidance to surrounding primary medical institutions, so as to advance high-quality obstetric development in the city.

Zhou said that the training sessions would focus on difficult problems in high-risk obstetric operations, gynecological tumors and pregnancy-related issues, and incomplete cervical function-related problems, and would combine remote instruction, offline classes, and hands-on practice to help enhance the medical technology service capacity of primary hospitals.

Wang said she hoped that more medical institutions and workers would participate in the training session in order to improve the comprehensive response capacity of acute and severe obstetric operations.

Five experts, including Wang Dong, a chief physician from the Chongqing University Cancer Hospital, and Wang Xueyan, gave lectures on topics ranging from "Gynecological Tumor and Pregnancy-related Issues" and "Impact of Cervical Disease Treatment on Fertility", to "Experience Sharing of Dangerous Placenta Previa Surgery Methods".

With mentors providing one-on-one guidance, each trainee was allowed to conduct hands-on practice of obstetric first-aid skills. The training was considered to effectively improve their comprehensive response abilities in obstetric operations.

As an obstetric training center in Southwest China, the CQHCWC will go on to be engaged in improving the basic surgical technical service capabilities of obstetric medical workers, to ensure the safety of both mothers and babies.
