Welcome to this online teaching and learning tool which was created as a response to facilitating remote teaching and learning. The resource was developed to enable students in institutions of higher learning, specifically medical and midwifery students, to learn and practice using the partogram and gravidogram which are important skills in perinatal care in South Africa. The graphs are contained in the Maternity Case Record and these are nationally used for all pregnant women in public sector maternity care facilities.
The site was designed so that teachers can write their own cases for students to use to complete either of the two graphs. It allows for students to learn how to correctly plot findings on the two graphs, identify problems and formulate a management plan which teachers can provide feedback on.
This use of the site is free but it does need internet connectivity, users can access it using a PC, laptop or mobile device. Any feedback or comments can be sent via the contact us link.
