  1. aN = 193 for pre/post I, N = 161 for pre/post II and N = 159 for pre I/post II. All changes significant with p-value <0.001. Topics not taught and tested as part of module I are marked blank with “--”. bPre-score from Module I for obstetric hemorrhage, neonatal resuscitation, and general emergencies, Pre-score from Module II for Preeclampsia/eclampsia and shoulder dystocia. Knowledge scores are percent correct and self-efficacy scores are self-score out of 100
