Why is learning ultrasound so important for those working in the obstetric or gynaecology fields? 

It is our strong belief – regardless of curriculum requirements – that everyone working in the fields of obstetrics or gynaecology must understand ultrasound. Never mind the fact that your patients automatically associate ultrasound with your field of expertise, the nature of the specialty lends itself naturally to the procedural, diagnostic and treatment benefits that ultrasound can deliver.  Regardless of its utility in your context, knowing what ultrasound can do, and how it can be applied is like a good shot of espresso coffee – once you get a taste you’ll want more. And more…
And once you get started it’s a no brainer that ultrasound skills will help you be a better health practitioner. In fact, ultrasound is recognised around the world as one of the most important skills you can develop to improve outcomes, save time and money (for you and your patient).

anaesthetics

Unfortunately, most obstetricians and gynaecologists have a poor experience of training, which has often been delivered in a haphazard or scattered approach. More often than not training has been provided by peers or energetic enthusiasts in the workplace who can demonstrate the potential for ultrasound, but – while passionate – haven’t invested in their ability to teach the art and science behind it. Plus the compromises that we all know come from training at work means a less than ideal learning environment. This results in an elongated training process with few practical take away skills, no clear pathway to develop skills and ultimately disappointment.

But you can do something about this. In order for you to avoid the stressful ups and downs of learning ultrasound, having a strong foundation on which to build your skills and a clear plan in place to support your development is fundamental. That’s where we can help.

Skills development

Every ultrasound user must establish the skills fundamental to acquiring an image – from turning a system on and optimising the system setup, to patient positioning and ergonomics. We’ll give you the foundations for independent practice.

Scanning Skills

To get the most out of your efforts and before picking up a probe it’s important to identify your objective – do you have a purpose for scanning? Scanning for scanning’s sake isn’t optimal. When learning you need to engage in deliberate practice to develop your ultrasound skills. When applied clinically, you need to have the ability to define your needs, identify limitations and make decisions. We’ll help you focus on where you’re going and what you want to achieve.

Learning Pathway

Attending a course is one thing – making the time to develop your ultrasound skills and abilities is another. Learning ultrasound is a lifelong commitment – trust us, we know. Commit to invest your time before you start. Take time to remove practice barriers. Focus your time. Track your progress. Spend time developing skills out of the clinic. We’ll work with you to identify a pathway for skills development in your context.

Support

When you get back to the workplace, what’s next? Early enthusiasm to use ultrasound can soon fade to frustration when you return to the workplace, where the reality of clinical demands and often lack of ultrasound users can undermine your confidence. We can help by providing ongoing support, training and credentialing – as well as ongoing information through our free coaching corner and social media posts. We’re there for you.

How do our ultrasound courses for obstetricians and gynaecologists work?

anaesthetics

It starts with registration, where you’re provided access to a range of online resources and activities to prepare you before you arrive. Don’t worry – this is not onerous, with videos and resources focused on the topics of that course.

Whatever your level of experience we adapt to your needs, accelerating your personal learning curve.

The better question to ask is what machines don’t you have! Most of the major players in the ultrasound world support us with their latest systems, making sure you get access to the best and newest technology available. We have so many systems here – from high end carts to handhelds – that in most cases there is a one-to-one ratio.

This ensures you are getting a no compromise sequential and structured education experience, all the while having the security and safety of learning with your peers. Your learning experience is not compromised by people joining at different stages and at different levels – you’ll be on board with the same team from beginning to end.

Would you only go to part of a movie? Our courses are designed to be attended as a whole, structured in a sequential way to make sure you develop and extend your ultrasound repertoire. Besides – if gaining your credentials is an important part of your motivation to come along, the bodies that accredit our courses wouldn’t look too kindly on you skipping class.

Absolutely not. Our courses are designed for obstetricians and gynaecologists at any stage of their career, with any level of ultrasound experience. Our experienced sonographer educators will adapt their teaching to meet you at your level – no stress.

“I attended the Advanced Emergency Ultrasound Course with Zedu Ultrasound and was extremely happy with my choice of training provider. The teaching is by brilliant Sonographers who are experts in their field. I was impressed at their ability to not only teach you the standard POCUS scans, but were fantastic at teaching you how to optimise your image, correct scanning issues, and set you on your way to integrate POCUS into your work. The communication was efficient, the food was lovely, and the atmosphere was pleasant.”

“Working with Zedu improved my scan techniques and speed of image acquisition. It really helped develop my techniques for teaching registrars and other colleagues. What I appreciated most about Zedu was the personalised approach and that the program was tailored to my need. Completing my logbooks for my CCPU (ASUM), it was great to have my images reviewed, assessments completed and to be able to scan a large number of patients in a short period of time.”
