The Department of Health’s ‘Safer Maternity Care’ report (Nov, 2017) outlined, in detail, the national strategy to achieve the ‘Maternity Safety Ambition’ of
halving stillbirths, neonatal and maternal deaths, and brain injuries by 2025. It stated that the ambition will not be achieved “unless the rate of preterm births is reduced”, with a further ambition set out to reduce preterm births from 8% to 6%.
This study day presents both an understanding of the origins of the outcomes of stillbirth, preterm birth, and fetal growth restriction, and practical ways in which these can be influenced, with a focus on ultrasound scanning techniques and management. This will help teams meet the aspirational targets within the
‘Maternity Safety Ambition’, set out in the ‘Saving Babies’ Lives’ care bundle. Local Maternity Champions would benefit from attendance, as well as frontline maternity staff.
This is an essential course designed to provide hands-on ultrasound instruction and training relevant to the care of women at risk of preterm birth, growth restriction, and stillbirth.
This course is for all clinical staff with an interest in preterm delivery and the management of small babies. Heads of Midwifery, Midwifery Sisters, Sonographers, Screening Coordinators, Improvement Leads (those who are part of the Maternal and Neonatal Health Safety Collaborative or who are implementing the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle), O&G Consultants and Trainees. Basic scanning experience is desirable, but not essential.
