The on-site and individual (SAIN) learning package on the prevention of postpartum hemorrhage consists of a Facilitator’s Guide to train mentors, a Mentor’s Guide, a Learner’s Guidebook, and a Learner’s Notebook. This learning package was developed for use by nurses, midwives, and doctors providing childbirth and immediate postpartum care. These documents comprise a set and should be used together. These resources are distinguished within the series by a corresponding icon located at the top of the right-hand page:

These learning materials were developed for in-service training of skilled birth attendants using a mixed- or blended-learning approach that combines self-paced study for the theoretical portion of the course followed by a clinical practicum. This training course should assist providers in offering the crucial care needed to prevent PPH.

The Facilitator’s Guide assists facilitators to train mentors to guide learners through the blended learning materials. The purpose of this guide is to help facilitators do their job when conducting PPPH training programs that include training mentors for competency in AMTSL and training them to guide learners using blended learning materials. The guide has the following components:

General information to assist the facilitator in conducting a training session.
An agenda for the training program.
Lesson plans for each session to be presented.
Knowledge assessment questionnaires and answers.
Model forms to fill in for the training report.
