K2 PTP (Perinatal Training Programme)

Clinicians Using Perinatal Trainign Programme in Hospital and at Home

The Perinatal Training Programme (PTP) is an interactive computer e-learning tool covering a comprehensive array of topics in fetal monitoring and maternity crisis management.

Content can be accessed over a secure internet connection anywhere, anytime; from hospital, home or on the move using a mobile device. Proven to be a sustainable and effective method of learning, the PTP is an invaluable resource for pre-course learning for team based Skills and Drills; as well as an efficient and cost effective alternative to traditional ‘lecture based’ learning.

What you will learn

Developed alongside clinicians, the PTP provides highly detailed and comprehensive content across a broad spectrum of topics in fetal monitoring and maternity crisis management. From chapters on Fetal Physiology and CTG interpretation, to Pre-Eclampsia and Shoulder Dystocia, the PTP teaching material is deep and diverse to ensure training and certification is of the highest standard. Teaching material is constantly reviewed and updated in line with national and international guidelines and initiatives ensuring the PTP remains relevant, comprehensive and informed.

Assessment and Simulation

With assessments available for each chapter, the Perinatal Training Programme offers unique components to test skills and assess understanding to ensure the content has been grasped, and the very highest standards are maintained and the knowledge base improves.

As well as in-learning assessment, K2 has developed a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind database of over a thousand real world cases with a full range of normal and very abnormal outcomes. The PTP Training Simulator offers users the chance to review these cases and practice their skills of CTG interpretation to decide, blind to outcome, how the cases should be managed. The choice of management can then be compared with that of 3 independent experts and the actual clinical outcome.

The K2 Simulator fully embraces national and international guidelines and features exciting functionality and management options.  Individual feedback is provided during simulation training allowing the user to fully assess their understanding to improve skills.

A Competency Assessment Tool (CAT) is also available to allow users to review cases, without expert guidance, to fully test their knowledge. Scores can be recorded to review progress and stored for later comparison.


The importance of training in fetal heart rate monitoring interpretation has long been recognised, and national guidance recommends that interactive computer based training be available to staff involved in the management of labour.
