The Need for Training
There has been a well-documented need for multi-professional improvements to CTG interpretation for decades to improve neonatal and maternal outcomes.
Errors with fetal heart rate monitoring was the most common theme found in Five years of cerebral palsy claims: A thematic review of NHS Resolution data (2017).
In addition, NHS England (Saving Babies’ Lives, 2016) recommends effective fetal monitoring in labour as one of the key elements of care designed to tackle stillbirth and neonatal deaths, and that training in CTG interpretation should be annual.
Aims and Objectives
A two-day version of our popular CTG Masterclass, which looks in more depth at CTG monitoring practices. It aims to enable midwives and obstetricians to be the champions of change in their local maternity units; to bring about a paradigm shift in CTG interpretation based on fetal physiology, so as to reduce unnecessary operative interventions whilst improving perinatal outcomes.
This exciting and hugely popular two-day course is beneficial for all midwives, obstetricians and clinical negligence lawyers who are involved in interpreting CTG traces. A basic knowledge of CTG interpretation would be beneficial, but not essential.
