After a ‘needs assessment’, in 2004 the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists developed and introduced the Fetal Surveillance Education Program (FSEP) to provide high quality education to all clinicians caring for labouring women in Australia and New Zealand. A formal evaluation of the program was planned from the inception of FSEP. We report here the participant feedback from the first 4439 participants in 2004–2006. Overall, FSEP was considered a high quality resource, rated equally well by midwives and obstetricians. This is the first large-scale evaluation to be reported for any fetal surveillance education program.
