Sound Sonography Course in Ghana

With a wide use of applications, ultrasound is an incredibly useful and relatively inexpensive tool for establishing accurate diagnoses and informing patient management decisions at the patient's bedside. This is especially the case when specialist imaging services are not readily accessible or in emergency situations.

 

However, safe use needs good quality, accredited training, which is not always available in many countries.

 

This new point of care ultrasound course will be delivered by a team of experts from various different specialties, in collaboration with academics from the University of Salford, UK.  It is designed to cover topics that are relevant to medical practitioners in low resource and remote settings and offers a blended learning model, combining online learning with intensive hands-on practical training and ongoing remote supervision.

This Course will...

  • Train Ghanaian and international healthcare professionals in point of care ultrasound, covering topics in emergency care, basic obstetrics and infectious diseases.
     

  • Develop an affordable, modular training model spread over several years to allow participants to build up their skills and knowledge over time.
     

  • Advocate for appropriate and high quality use and evaluation of point of care ultrasound in health care settings where expert imaging services are not easily accessible.
