APGO Induction of Labor

This app was developed by APGO as a tool to help ob-gyn learners as they consider if and when to induce labor in their patients.

Learning Objectives
After completing the exercises in this app, the app user will be able to:

1) Properly employ an inpatient induction patient checklist and other resources to learn how to and teach how to determine if the patient is a candidate for induction and if so, appropriate method(s) for inducing labor; and

2) Properly employ a labor progress tracking tool where the user will enter data to generate a partogram that will teach him/her how to evaluate if an induction method is working.

All health and health-related information contained within the WellMom App is designed to be general in nature and based on published guidelines.
