ISUOG Outreach is off and rolling again! This time, we’re pleased to support a workshop taking place in Darwin (Northern Territory), Australia this week from Friday, 24 October to Monday, 27 October 2014.
This workshop will be led by ISUOG Outreach volunteers Nayana Parange and Sujatha Thomas and will be done in partnership with the Australasian Society of Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM).
The workshop will offer 21 midwives and general practitioners basic training skills in OB/GYN ultrasound as these practitioners will later be bringing their newly learned skills to the underserved aboriginal communities in Northern Western Australia.
The Australian aboriginal community is among the most underserved in the continent, with many lacking basic health needs such as proper prenatal health care. Training these practitioners and bringing them to the communities will help to combat the high levels of maternal and neonatal mortality levels in the region.
Stay tuned for more updates as this workshop happens, including guest blogs from the Workshop organiser, Nayana Parange!
