Expanding the reach of fetal monitoring education

Vidant Health is working to bring ongoing fetal monitoring education to all of its birthing facilities.  Jennifer Kendrick, the Perinatal Outreach Coordinator and an AWHONN Fetal Monitoring Instructor for Vidant Health, provides email education each month to all labor and delivery staff and providers throughout the Vidant system.  Jennifer identifies strips to target specific educational needs, such as tachysystole, abruption and fetal distress, and emails a sample strip along with a case study and a series of questions regarding interpretation and subsequent interventions.  When responses are submitted, Jennifer provides corrective guidance as appropriate.  Fantastic work by Jennifer and the Vidant system in keeping fetal monitoring education in the forefront of care delivery!
