Fetal Surveillance Education Program

pregnant woman

The Fetal Surveillance Education full day program runs for seven hours and provides a solid foundation of information for all clinicians involved in antenatal and intrapartum care.

The full program is structured to cumulatively build understanding. Participants in the full program also complete the FSEP MCQ assessment at the end of the session.

This is RANZCOG's core education program and is suited to most clinicians requiring education or an update in cardiotocography.
