K2 PTP (Perinatal Training Programme)

Clinicians Using Perinatal Trainign Programme in Hospital and at Home

K2 PTP, supporting a physiological approach to CTG interpretation

The Perinatal Training Programme (PTP) is an online, interactive e-learning tool covering a comprehensive array of topics in Fetal Monitoring and Maternity Crisis Management, including Competency Assessments covering all modules.

Content can be accessed over a secure internet connection anywhere, anytime; from hospital, home or on the move using a tablet or mobile device. Proven to be a sustainable and effective method of individual learning, the PTP is also an invaluable training resource for pre-course learning for team based Skills and Drills.  PTP is 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 Centre

With assessments available for each chapter, the Perinatal Training Programme (PTP) offers a unique approach to test knowledge and understanding so that the very highest standards are attained and maintained.

The PTP Simulator:  K2 has developed a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind database of over a thousand real world cases with a full range of normal and abnormal outcomes. The PTP Simulator fully embraces national and international guidelines and features exciting functionality and management options.  It offers users the chance to review these cases and practice their skills of physiological CTG interpretation to decide, blind to outcome, how the cases should be managed. The PTP Simulator enables the user to work through a case with feedback given at each step of their interpretation and management.  The PTP Assessment Simulator allows the user to manage a randomly assigned case; once completed, individual feedback is provided allowing the user to fully assess their core knowledge and understanding to improve skills.

Competency Assessment Tool (CAT): With each PTP chapter there is a corresponding assessment with individual feedback to identify areas of recommended re-learning.  K2 Administrators have the option to add their own questions just for their staff.

K2 Administrators can review all progress, results and completions at the touch of a button for the organisation or individual.  All reports can be saved and printed as required.  The Administrator is always able to view compliance and competency of their staff.

We love to receive your feedback, here are a few recent comments about K2 PTP

 "K2 is a fantastic platform it offers an easy to follow explanation and a step-by-step guidance; this is much needed in our practice as we are very new to CTG and its use. I gained a more in depth understanding of fetal physiological and pathological changes and how that is reflected on CTG and its interpretations. The interactive way K2 presents this information, via questions, answers and discussion with the opportunity to repeat, keeps the learners interested and 'hooked'.  

Dr Z Ghaddah, a specialist in O&G , Overseas

 This is good learning material. Well detailed and very practical.  I will definitely put this to good use in my everyday practice. Thank you. 

Martha Jeche, Midwife, Healthscope Hospitals, Australia

Ghislaine Bowden, Midwife, Princess Royal University Hospital, UK

 What a marvellous training tool: Informative, relevant, easy to navigate, great visuals with occasional humour. An enjoyable way to learn. 

Julie Abson, Midwife, Airedale General Hospital, UK

  The outline is very clear and easy to follow and to understand.  And I found the visual aids are very very helpful in further understanding the conditions. 

Farah Ismadi, Student, University College Cork, Republic of Ireland

  Good training and will help with day to day practice in interpreting CTG.  

Beena Subba, Doctor, North Middlesex University Hospitals, UK

  I enjoy the programme, it is well explained, repetitive when needed, not boring for the student, visual stimulating as well. Very important, you can choose your own time to start or stop. Very memorable examples. It's perfect!  

Plamena Staneva, Midwife, UK

  Excellent. I just love it.  I would like to have it always as a consultant material.  Everything is so well explained, so detailed.  

Yamilka Echevarria, Nurse, The  Women's Hospital, Qatar, UAE
