Workshop Overview

The Fetal Health Surveillance (FHS) course, designed by the Canadian Perinatal Programs Coalition of Canada, provides evidence-based, interprofessional education in fetal health surveillance.  The course content reflects the recommendations provided by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGC) Fetal Health Surveillance: Antepartum and Intrapartum Consensus Guideline (2007). As cited by the SOGC in the guideline, it is the responsibility of individual practitioners and facilities providing intrapartum services to ensure that fundamental knowledge of fetal health surveillance be attained and updated on a regular basis. The Canadian Association of Perinatal and Women’s Health Nurses recommends all nurses providing pregnancy and intrapartum assessment using fetal health surveillance participate in FHS education every 2 years.

Target Audience

The course is intended for practitioners (nurses, physicians, registered midwives) who want to learn the current fundamental concepts related to fetal health surveillance. It is designed for:

  • Care providers with clinical experience as part of their regular review of fetal health surveillance knowledge, skills and clinical decision making.
  • New obstetrical care providers as an adjunct to their facility orientation program.

The FHS Course consists of three components:

  • Pre-workshop Study of the Fetal Health Surveillance On-line Learning Modules from the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine CPD.
  • Completion of the On-line Exam upon completion of the Online Modules
  • Face-to-Face Workshop with an emphasis on Case studies and interprofessional teamwork and communication.
