This activity aims to train maternal health workers to talk to their expectant parents about fetal monitoring and use best practices to track fetal monitoring. By using evidence-based and non-invasive tools, providers can help prevent stillbirths.

This webinar may be viewed for CEU until 6/30/24.


Following the webinar, participants will be able to: 
•    Demonstrate how to implement Count the Kicks into their practice to improve birth outcomes.
•    Utilize the free kick-counting tools and resources available to them.
•    Describe the powerful stories of what happens when expectant parents, particularly at-risk populations, learn to track fetal movement and how they can use that knowledge to help save babies.

Continuing Education

Southern Illinois University School of Medicine (SIU) is providing continuing education credit for various disciplines including contact hours for Registered Nurses, Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Hours for Registered Dietitians, and Social Work hours.

After the webcast, CHTC staff will provide your information and type of continuing education credit requested to SIU.  Within ten days, you will receive an email from SIU requesting that you create a profile on their website using either IE10 or newer, Google Chrome or Firefox.  If you have received continuing education credit from SIU for previous training sessions offered by IDHS through the Training Center, please do not create a new profile.  Access to the current continuing education opportunity will be added to your existing profile.  For those attendees that are new, after your profile is created, you will be given access to the evaluation.  Once the evaluation is completed, you will be able to print a continuing education certificate.
