Obstetric and Fetal Monitoring Program The periFACTS® Obstetric and Fetal Monitoring program focuses on teaching fetal heart rate interpretation skills as well as providing up-to-date information on common obstetric issues. Learning materials are presented to our participants on a monthly basis and consist of educational videos, engaging reading materials, and real-life clinical cases that include fetal heart rate tracings and test questions. periFACTS® uses NICHD vocabulary, which encourages nurses and doctors to use the same language for fetal heart rate interpretation. Currently, nearly 12,000 providers across the country and abroad participate in the program. Click here to enroll now. The Obstetric and Fetal Monitoring program is based on a 12-month curriculum. Each month, obstetric nurse specialists and perinatologists at the University of Rochester Medical Center and a broad range of medical specialists who, in addition to their clinical duties, prepare and distribute the following: Two articles devoted to a major obstetric topic Two clinical case studies with fetal heart rate tracings for interpretation that relate to the obstetric articles Educational periFACTS® Videos One web-casted grand rounds lecture Access to the Gynecology Course Clinical Quandary One menoPAUSE medicine article This program is offered exclusively online and is available anywhere Internet access is available. Nurse participants have the opportunity to complete 24 clinical case studies each year. At least 1.0 nursing contact hour is awarded upon successful completion of each article and related clinical case study in the Obstetric and Fetal Monitoring program. An average of 1 nursing contact hour is awarded upon successful completion of each Gynecology Course module (article and review test). Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and midwives can earn at least 24 AMA PRA Category 1 credits per year for the Obstetric and Fetal Monitoring program, and they can earn at least 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits per year for the Gynecology Course. Clinically relevant articles and case studies, prepared by a broad range of experts, are posted on the first day of every month. Participants read the articles and complete their tests and evaluations online. All test questions are in a multiple choice, true/false, multiple-answer, or matching format. Tests are corrected automatically and participants receive immediate feedback on their test results. The periFACTS® Videos present short, educational videos that focus on fetal heart rate monitor interpretation, general obstetric, patient safety, and disease-related topics. Videos are now eligible for Nursing Contact Hour credit. The University of Rochester's web-casted grand rounds are presented every month on topics pertaining to obstetrics, gynecology, endocrinology, oncology, and urogynecology. The Clinical Quandaries address clinical or professional challenges that our participants currently are facing. The menoPAUSE medicine article provides a short discussion regarding the aspects of menopause transition. NEW effective March 2015, no start-up fee for new subscribers.
