Electronic Fetal Monitoring

eFM is a comprehensive web-based resource developed by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Royal College of Midwives in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.

eFM will teach and assess learners in all aspects of intrapartum electronic fetal monitoring and is directed at both obstetricians and midwives in training as well as those who have completed their training. eFM is split into three sections:

  • A knowledge-based, interactive tutorial section.

  • An assessment section which formally tests what knowledge the learner has acquired from the knowledge-based sessions. Note: Each case study has an intrinsic assessment of the learner's skill at CTG interpretation and subsequent management.

  • A case study section which allows the learner to practise their skills at interpretation of an actual fetal heart rate recording, and the subsequent management in a virtual labour ward setting. The challenging nature of the content, including the interpretation of cardiotocographs and subsequent appropriate management, will provide learners with valuable knowledge that does not currently exist in other resources.

eFM aims to train users on CTG interpretation in line with NICE recommendations. We have undertaken a revision exercise to update all our sessions, in accordance with the NICE Intrapartum Care Guidelines of December 2014.
