Electronic fetal monitoring curriculum
Electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) is at the heart of nearly half of all obstetric malpractice cases in this country. The Obstetric Safety Initiative is making available a course specifically designed to improve care and reduce claims. Uniform, verifiable EFM education and training for all your obstetric staff is essential.
