First trimester screening, outreach programme, Panchkula

FMFIndia conducted another successful outreach program at Paras Bliss Hospital in Panchkula on 29th May 2016.

Dr Anita Kaul ably supported by Dr Rachna Gupta, Secretary, Outreach Programme, aims to propagate the foundation’s mission of delivering high quality training of fetal diagnostic skills to medical professionals all over the country. Panchkula was the 3rd leg of Plan-2016 to cover tier-II and tier-III cities across India.

The outreach programme saw enthusiastic discussion on how to make Combined First Trimester Screening (NT with Dual marker test) feasible and universally applicable in clinics and government hospitals and the important role that obstetricians can play in ensuring Sonographers do the NT scan as per FMF UK standard. Special thanks to Dr Rashmi Bagga and Dr Alka Sehgal, for their valueable inputs and feedback, it really made the outreach worth its idea.

The programme covered all aspects of First trimester scan including combined screening, anomalies, screening for preeclampsia, multiple pregnancy, impact being enhanced with live demonstration and MCQ discussion.

The FMFIndia team is thankful to Dr Nupur Shah, Dr Rishi Mangat and the entire Paras Bliss management team for a stellar programme.
