Antepartum/ Postpartum Program

The periFACTS® Antepartum/Postpartum program is a variation of the Obstetrics and Fetal Monitoring program available to obstetric providers who do not require fetal monitoring education and credits.

It presents the same, new monthly learning materials (two new articles and two new clinical case studies and tests), however, the clinical case study contains questions that pertain to the corresponding article only. No fetal heart rate monitoring interpretation questions are included.

    • Two articles devoted to a major obstetric topic.
    • Two clinical case studies and tests that relate to each obstetric article.

We recommend that you select someone who demonstrates leadership qualities and who has an established positive rapport with the obstetric staff.
