142351 - Obstetric & Gynaecological Ultrasound 4-Day Course

  • : Online

This 4-day workshop is designed for general practitioners who have an interest in point of care obstetric ultrasound and want to allocate more time in obtaining more hands on skills. As point of care ultrasound is an essential medical tool in obstetric diagnosis and monitoring, which is highly operator dependent, more scanning time is an excellent choice in order to provide safe and effective bedside obstetric ultrasound assessment. Aspects covered include system orientation and probe manipulation techniques relevant to obstetric assessment in early pregnancy, basic monitoring the fetus (second and third trimesters), amniotic fluid index (AFI) and cord Doppler. This course provides Certificate of Clinical Performed Ultrasound (CCPU) offered by the Australian Society for Ultrasound in Medical Practice (ASUM) in the following units: physics, basic early pregnancy and basic 
monitoring the fetus (2nd and 3rd trimester).

Relevance to General Practice

Gestational ultrasonography is an essential procedure in a great number of countries [1-4]. It is an accurate technique for determining gestational age, number of fetuses, fetal cardiac activity, and placental location. In addition, many congenital structural anomalies and significant abnormalities in fetal growth can be identified. In Australia, the Royal Australia New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RANZCOG) recommends ultrasound examination for all pregnant patients and states that benefits and limitations of ultrasonography should be discussed with all patients [5]. The aim of this course is to provide procedural general practitioners and gynecologists basic skills and more scanning practice to safely access early pregnancy and first trimester.
