This course addresses principles of fetal heart monitoring and may be used as a knowledge assessment tool to validate comprehension of experienced perinatal clinicians.

This course includes lecture, hands-on skill stations including performing Leopold maneuvers, placement of an intrauterine pressure catheter and fetal spiral electrode, interpretation of fetal monitoring tracings using a case-based approach, identification of physiologically based clinical interventions, and communication and risk management principles. Online prerequisite education is required prior to attending the one-day course. Successful completion of the online knowledge validation test is required to receive CNE/CME for the course. This course can be used to support preparation for certification examinations.

  • Overarching goal is to provide common foundation of knowledge and skills relating to FHM.
  • Recognizes that clinicians’ knowledge, experiences, and skills differ.
  • Patient safety promoted when all clinicians use standardized terminology.

CNE/CME contact hours: 11.25/11.25 (0.5 hours pharmacology credits available)
Format: Online prerequisite education, followed by a one-day, Instructor-led course.

Who is this course for?

Clinicians who have completed entry-level/basic education and use fetal monitoring in the intrapartum setting.

  • Includes lecture and hands-on skill stations, including performing Leopold maneuvers, intrauterine pressure catheter and fetal spiral electrode placement, identification of physiologically based clinical interventions, and communication and risk management principles.
  • Use as knowledge validation for experienced perinatal clinicians.
  • May be used to support certification exam preparation.
  • Online integration test required.

HSHS colleagues, please contact your leader to register for this course.
