EFM Clinical decision support system (CDSS) is an interactive Expert system Computer Software, that assist physicians and other health professionals with decision making during use of EFM algorithms..It uses knowledge management in such a way to achieve clinical advice for patient care based on some number of items of patient data.An EFM CDSS should include Computer Aided Interpretation. EFM Computer Aided Interpretation allows the novice to produce accurate and standardized NICHD analysis quickly.

Hi Doris,

In the UK one place to look at is e-Learning for Healthcare which is in partnership with The Royal College of Midwives & Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists

Hi Emilly

The content description of the Electronic Fetal Monitoring is below:

Electronic Fetal Monitoring

eFM is a comprehensive web-based resource developed by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Royal College of Midwives in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.

eFM will teach and assess learners in all aspects of intrapartum electronic fetal monitoring and is directed at both obstetricians and midwives in training as well as those who have completed their training. eFM is split into three sections:

  • A knowledge-based, interactive tutorial section.


  • An assessment section which formally tests what knowledge the learner has acquired from the knowledge-based sessions. Note: Each case study has an intrinsic assessment of the learner's skill at CTG interpretation and subsequent management.


  • A case study section which allows the learner to practise their skills at interpretation of an actual fetal heart rate recording, and the subsequent management in a virtual labour ward setting. The challenging nature of the content, including the interpretation of cardiotocographs and subsequent appropriate management, will provide learners with valuable knowledge that does not currently exist in other resources. This section is separated into 'Test' and 'Learning' case studies. Test case studies are to be worked through 1 trace hour at a time and will carry CPD points and certification. 'Learning' case studies have been designed with a 'freedom of movement' throughout the case study, enabling users to discuss and debate any point or trace hour, at any time. They will be designed to ignite discussion and will be a great addition to the classroom/lecture theatre as well as study groups. Learning case studies will not benefit from CPD points as there will be no scoring attached to these.


eFM currently has 24 case studies (2011, 2013) for reference purposes only now, with 10 new ones (2015) developed in accordance with the 2014 NICE guidelines. Three or more expert opinions have populated the clinical cases with their answers. Answers can now be collated and scored to give a final % score, to allow for CPD points (Test case studies only). Users are allowed as many attempts as they like to improve their score. Learning case studies have also been created to provide a foundation for debate and classroom discussion. These will not carry CPD points.

I hope that was what you were looking for.

Nigel
