Beyond the Basics: The Art and Science of Tracing Interpretation

WAPC Fetal Monitoring Case Review Series

Monitoring a pregnant person and their fetus during the antepartum and intrapartum periods is an essential component of perinatal care. The purpose of this course is to use case studies to build on knowledge of and skills about interpreting electronic fetal heart rate strips.  

This course offers:

  • Continuing skill-building through an interactive approach that goes beyond the basics of who, how, and when to monitor
  • Content for those who have demonstrated competency in basic fetal monitoring skills
  • Unique curriculum at EVERY session, using NEW case studies and strip reviews from actual de-identified cases from across Wisconsin
  • Discussion using current ACOG/NICHD recommendations
  • Interaction with colleagues around the state with the convenience of learning from work or home

The interactive live sessions will be held via Zoom; recordings will be available. Continuing education for attending both live or recorded sessions will be available for both CNE and CME. These case studies are intended for physicians, nurses, certified nurse midwives, and other perinatal providers who routinely do electronic fetal monitoring.

See all session dates and registration fees listed below. Individual and institutional/group registrations are both available.
