Intrapartum fetal heart rate monitoring is used to assess fetal oxygenation during labor to promote patient safety. To provide optimal patient care, providers (Registered Nurses, Nurse Midwives and Physicians) need to understand the terminology, interpretation of and patient management related to electronic fetal monitoring (EFM). The modules include content regarding components of uterine activity assessment, elements of fetal heart rate patterns, the correlation of fetal heart rate patterns to fetal acidemia, categories of fetal heart tracings, as well as appropriate patient management, teamwork and communication.

The purpose of Module 1 is to provide an overview of reproductive health and infertility. Pregnancy is achieved by the successful completion of a complex process that involves many steps. For pregnancy to occur naturally, a woman must ovulate or release an egg from her ovaries, a man’s sperm must travel and fertilize the egg by entering it, the fertilized egg must move through the fallopian tube to the uterus, then must implant onto the inside of the uterus. When there is a problem with any or several of these steps infertility may occur. The purpose of this module is to provide an overview of infertility, and review the causes, evaluation process, and treatment options.

The purpose of this module is to describe the impact of preconception and interconception health on future pregnancies. The main goal of preconception care is to provide health promotion, screening, and intervention for women of reproductive age to reduce risk factors that can affect future pregnancies. Interconception care provides an opportunity to reduce risks indicated by a previous adverse outcome through interventions before another pregnancy occurs.

The complex process that brings both mother and newborn through pregnancy to the day of birth is rarely appreciated. It is amazing that the sequence of events including fertilization, implantation, and development occur successfully most of the time. The purpose of this module is to clarify some of these processes in the context of the patient care delivered every day. This module provides an overview of physiologic and psychosocial adaptation to pregnancy building on knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology. It also includes a summary of information about some of the more common methods of prenatal assessment and screening.

"The purpose of this module is to introduce the topic and issues surrounding pregnancy loss and its aftermath. Responses to perinatal loss vary widely, but for many parents, the loss is unexpected and they do not know what to do, what to expect, or how to handle their grief. Also the consequences of perinatal loss are emotional, psychologic, spiritual, cognitive, physiological, and social in nature. This module will discuss various types of perinatal loss and the effects of the loss on the mother and her partner. Insights and strategies for caregiving, teaching, and helping families cope and continue their lives are addressed. This content should assist in sensitizing the nurse to the importance of interactions with women and their families during this time. These interactions may have an enduring positive or negative impact for years to come. This module will help nurses to recognize differences in the grief response that may occur as a result of modifiers such as attachment, culture, and gender. These differences can be used in planning individualized care for families. "

The EFM Assessment Competency Exam (HSTM-MedStar) presents examinees with images of fetal monitor strips along with clinical scenarios (vital signs, weeks’ gestation, number of contractions, etc.). The questions focus on interpretation, etiology, appropriate interventions, and patient safety. The examination items are congruent with educational material found in current resources approved by the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) and conform to the definitions for fetal heart rate patterns developed during the proceedings of the 2008 National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) workshop on electronic fetal monitoring.
