Electronic Fetal Monitoring (eFM) Training
This practical eFM training programme directed at obstetricians and midwives, focuses on building the skills to interpret cardiotocographs (CTG) correctly.
You can develop your knowledge on many related topics, including fetal heart rate issues, normal and abnormal traces, breech births and multiple pregnancies.
During the sessions, you can interrogate CTG traces from real labours and give your interpretation and recommendations. You can then compare your findings with the outcome at the end of each session. You can also access an e-library and relevant articles from international journals.
This programme is organised into four learning paths:
- Level 1 – Pathophysiology; Normal Fetal Heart Rate Pattern
- Level 2 – Risk Factors for Fetal Hypoxia
- Level 3 – Pathophysiology; Complex Fetal Heart Rate Pattern
- Level 4 – Complex Pregnancies
For each level, you can complete a series of interactive knowledge sessions and a dedicated assessment.
You must achieve a pass score of 80% for each assessment to unlock the next level’s assessment sessions.
Real-life case studies
This programme includes case studies with CTG traces from real labours. So, you can practise your interpretation skills in the safety of a virtual ward.
eIntegrity programmes are developed by NHS Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare programme (HEE e-LfH).
The programmes are high quality self-directed learning programmes. They are designed to support training and CPD and are excellent resources alongside other traditional teaching methodologies. They have been developed by the UK NHS for use in the NHS. However, many of the programmes have international relevance, particularly the specialty training programmes which are often mapped to UK specialty training curricula.
