This resource is an audiovisual tutorial for pharmacologic management of postpartum hemorrhage. This module was prepared for use in residencies with significant obstetrical training but is appropriate for use by any individual seeking detailed information on pharmacologic management of postpartum hemorrhage. It can be used in conjunction with postpartum hemorrhage simulation, in support of didactic sessions, and as a stand-alone discussion or review of the subject matter. The presentation contains a narrated PowerPoint slide set with embedded summary tables. There is a transcription of all audio narration so that the resource is usable for the hearing impaired. This module was developed as part of a comprehensive blended learning curriculum for teaching the management of postpartum hemorrhage. The full curriculum included 7 on line modules followed by face-to-face teaching and learning with task trainers and a multi-disciplinary simulation case.
