- Describe antenatal surveillance techniques including fetal movement counting, NST, and biophysical profile.
- Discuss teamwork, communication and documentation as they relate to fetal health surveillance and perinatal outcomes.
4. The virtual FHS Fundamental Workshop length is 12 hours with four sessions of three hours in length. The FHS Refresher Workshop is dependent on the learner's needs but typically 3 - 4 hours in length.
