ISUOG, in partnership with ASUM has run several workshops which are aimed to teach basic training ultrasound in OB/GYN to midwives and GPs from rural areas of the country.
Despite being a developed nation, Australia's aboriginal community are among the most underserved within the continent, at times lacking proper access to quality midwives. As a result, the level of maternal and neonatal mortality in this community remains the highest in Australia.
ISUOG, in partnership with the Australisian Society of Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM) has run several workshops which are aimed to teach basic training ultrasound in OB/GYN to midwives and GPs from rural areas of the country (such as Northern Territory and South Australia). These midwives and practitioners will support the provision of competent ultrasound and encourage the women of the aboriginal communities to have regular scans to monitor both their health and that of the baby.
