ARC Online Training
We are currently offering a range of bite sized online training sessions for healthcare professionals:
This session will provide a brief introduction to Antenatal Results and Choices (ARC) and our work. It is aimed at any healthcare professional with little or no prior knowledge of our work.
Having to deliver unexpected and difficult news to expectant parents about their pregnancy can be a daunting and emotional task. This session is informed by our many years of working with parents who have been through antenatal screening, testing and diagnosis and is aimed at supporting healthcare professionals in how to sensitively deliver unexpected or difficult news. The session is an introduction to Day 1 of our training days.
Session 3 is our most comprehensive and interactive online training session and functions as an introduction to Training Day 2 and 3. The session is 90 minutes long and is aimed at furthering the understanding of how to best support parents' in their choices. It focuses on supporting parents' decision-making, examining our own values and how to provide best care when the choice is made to continue or to end an affected pregnancy.
In recognition of the need to provide a free, safe and confidential space for healthcare professionals working in antenatal care, we are planning to run regular events for healthcare professionals to discuss the challenging aspects of antenatal screening and diagnosis. The November session will focus specifically on the complexities and challenges of supporting parents facing termination for fetal anomaly (TOPFA).
