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.

Issues with fetal monitoring were identified as a leading contributory factor in reports and investigations which look at avoidable deaths in intrapartum care including NHS Resolution’s Early Notification scheme progress report (2019) and Each Baby Counts (2020).

In addition, NHS England (Saving Babies’ Lives, 2019) recommends effective fetal monitoring in labour as one of the key elements of care designed to tackle perinatal deaths, and that training in CTG interpretation should be annual.

Aims and Objectives

The Advanced CTG Masterclass 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. The two day course will go into more detail and allow further reflection, which will demand a basic level of knowledge of the approach.

Relevant For

Beneficial for all professionals who are involved in interpreting CTG traces.
