ARC Case Café (13 October 2021 – 7.30pm-8.30pm)
Extensive technological developments means that expectant parents are now offered a variety of prenatal testing to check for more conditions than ever before, but our ability to give clear and absolute prognostic information has not kept pace. Most prenatal diagnoses entail a degree of uncertainty with clinicians unable to say exactly what the diagnosis might mean for an individual baby. During this month's case café, we will explore how professionals working in antenatal care can support parents dealing with high levels of uncertainty and discuss how health professionals can equip themselves best to deal with the challenges of communicating uncertain information.
