This 1-hour session for students will focus on how to deliver high quality care through antenatal screening, testing and diagnosis. We will discuss strategies for communicating unexpected and difficult news such as a high chance screening result, how to best support parents’ decision-making and how Antenatal Results and Choices (ARC) can help support you in your work. The session is free to attend, but we kindly ask for those who can, to contribute to our work by making a small donation to help us fund our work.
ARC Case Café (9 February 2022 7.30-8.30pm) (fully booked)
Welcome to the February edition of the ARC Case Café!
This session we will revisit one of our most popular Case Café topics from last year and focus on the particular challenges of providing care in the case of twin pregnancies. Carrying twins or higher multiples inevitably complicates the already complex process of antenatal screening and diagnosis and its potential consequences. We will discuss the particular challenges that can arise in multiple pregnancy and share our insight into what might help parents.
We welcome any healthcare professional who works in antenatal care to this session. Please note that this session is intended for healthcare professionals.
