Continuous cardiotocography (CTG) as a form of electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) for fetal assessment during labour.
Evaluated the effectiveness and safety of continuous cardiotocography when used as a method to monitor fetal wellbeing during labour, which showed no significant improvement in overall perinatal death rate.
An evaluation of the satisfaction of midwives' working in midwifery group practice.
Examining changes in midwives' attitudes to their professional role following the introduction of midwifery group practice (MGP), a positive change in attitudes to professional role was reflected in all sub-scales in the period between start-up and 18 months later; a reduction in scores occurred in Round 3.

Continuous cardiotocography during labour is associated with a reduction in neonatal seizures, but no significant differences in cerebral palsy, infant mortality or other standard measures of neonatal well-being.
Labor and delivery nurses' attitudes toward intermittent fetal monitoring.
Lack of knowledge regarding the current evidence and other barriers may contribute to intermittent auscultation not being used routinely, despite the fact that its use for women of low obstetrical risk is supported by current research and professional organizations.
The Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO®) Program: Fourteen Years of Progress
Limited evidence suggests the ALSO® program can be effective and efficient in enhancing the knowledge and skills of prehospital and disaster medicine clinicians.
