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 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, as well as the opportunity to send comments and queries directly to experts to challenge decisions and get feedback on comparisons. An assessment tool is also available to allow users to review cases without expert guidance to fully test ability and understanding. Scores can be recorded to review progress and stored for later comparison.
