This one-day instructor-led course is designed to prepare nurses and physicians to care for patients with complex fetal heart monitor tracings. The course expands on the knowledge and principles presented in the AWHONN Intermediate EFM course. It is recommended that the learner has completed the AWHONN Intermediate EFM Course, a comparable fetal heart monitoring workshop, and/or is certified in fetal heart monitoring. At least one year of fetal monitoring experience is strongly encouraged. The course utilizes a case study approach to analyze complicated fetal tracings and characteristics. Course components emphasize:
- Maternal-fetal physiology
- Interpretation of fetal tracings that include recommended interventions
- Verbal and written communication skills
- Risk management principles
Pre-course work: Participants are strongly encouraged to review “AWHONN Fetal Heart Monitoring Principles and Practice, fifth edition” (textbook).
