Fetal Health Surveillance

PLEASE NOTE: Perinatal Services BC does not offer provider courses. Each health authority or individual hospitals have FHS instructors who offer FHS provider courses. Please contact the education department at the hospital or health authority in your area directly to find out when the next provider course isas we are not notified about upcoming courses.

‎Attached you will find two documents to help you, your organizations, and your learners through the transition with the new online FHS exam being fee for access.


The first document is a Frequently Asked Questions document based on the questions that you brought forward during one of the last two "Question and Answer Webinars".  Please review this document!  This document also contains a sample email communication to send to your learners when they have registered or been enrolled in your workshops as well as certificate of completion templates; as well as certificate templates for both the Fundamental of FHS Workshop and FHS Refresher Workshops.


The second document is instructions on how to access the online manual, online exam and how your organization can make bulk purchases of exam access codes!  Please review this document as the changes will be made on the UBC CPD website on Friday August 31st at 1630 PST, at which time all learners will need to re-register for access to the manual. 


Access to the Online Fundamentals of Fetal Health Surveillance Manual will remain free of charge, however, access to write the exam will incur a cost.   We would encourage you to start using the online exam as a pre-requisite to attending your Fundamentals in FHS Workshops now, knowing that come January 1st, 2019, the expectation will be that all learners provide proof of successful exam completion prior to attending an in-person workshop. 



Keep your eyes on your inbox for further information coming your way this fall on the FHS Instructor Portal!
