Kenya WFUMB COE.

Kenya WFUMB COE.

by Admin

The COE is based in the Radiology department of the Aga Khan University hospital in Nairobi Kenya.

Regular educational programs are organized by the COE on a monthly basis. The topics are current and span the entire field of ultrasound examinations. Attendance is good and numbers are increasing.

We hold an annual conference and the last conference was attended by 110 participants; this was full capacity! Attendees came from Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. Prof Odd Helge (President, EFSUMB) from Norway was our guest speaker.

Other educational programs include the recently concluded Visiq project. Phillips Medical Systems chose our COE to carry out the research project. Midwives with no previous experience in performing ultrasound were trained for 4 weeks at the COE using a well-structured curriculum that included both classroom teaching and hands on experience. Upon passing an exit examination, they were certified to perform basic obstetric ultrasounds with a view to identify high risk pregnancies. All scans were performed on portable Visiq ultrasound machines in three remote centers. Images and provisional reports were sent to the COE using mobile phone internet technology and validated by Radiologists. The accuracy of performing and reporting scans by midwives, as well as assessing this type of teleradiology was analyzed and the study was completed in 2016; it was recently published in UMB.

In our region, the COE has had a positive impact; here are some reasons:

a) We have improved skills for Sonographers who are practicing but require hands-on experience to perform difficult/challenging ultrasound procedures.

b) The CME lectures are popular and feedback from Sonographers is very positive. However, initially, it was only amenable to those that live in Nairobi. Sonographers from other cities find it difficult to attend. We are distributing the lectures to members of KESUMB.

c) By creating an interest in ultrasound among Radiographers, many are choosing this as their profession. There are now two training centers in Nairobi and large numbers are enrolling for the diploma courses.

Going forward, we are working on an accreditation process because we realized that there are some poorly trained Sonographers in Kenya who have been certified and are licensed to work. This poses serious challenges about patient safety. As a COE, we submitted a proposal to provide accreditation for qualified Sonographers. This will take the form of a test; those that pass will receive accreditation. Those that fail will be offered help (mainly ‘hands on’) to achieve accreditation. This idea has been floated amongst the Sonographer community and the response has been very positive. We are awaiting approval from authorities to start the accreditation process and hope to get this early next year.

Sonographers Day

We intend to hold this in February 2019. Local funding will be sought but we may request request $1000.

Accreditation of practicing Sonographers

There are some poorly trained Sonographers in Kenya who have been certified and are licensed to work. This poses serious challenges about patient safety. As a COE, we have written a proposal to provide accreditation for qualified Sonographers. This will take the form of a test; those that pass will receive accreditation. Those that fail will be offered help (mainly ‘hands on’) to achieve accreditation. This idea has been floated amongst the Sonographer community and the response has been very positive.

We are writing a proposal to WFUMB for funding in this regard as a quality assurance exercise so we can improve the skills of Sonographers.

Budget: Three rounds @ $250 per batch of 10. Total: $750

Annual Conference

This will include participation from Sonographers in other cities of Kenya and from some East African countries. This may double as a small MASU meeting. The provisional date is October 2019. Part of the activity will be ‘hands-on’ teaching.

Budget: 2 speakers to be sponsored by WFUM

THEME: Strengthening utility of ultrasound in breast imaging and interventions in LMICs.

VENUE: Aga Khan University Hospital, Lecture theatre.

Nigeria WFUMB COE. Est 2012

Nigeria WFUMB COE. Est 2012

by Admin

Goal of WFUMB is to “help bring sustainable ultrasound programmes to the underserved areas of the world to improve healthcare through collaboration, communication and education.” WFUMB achieves these Goals through its COEs in the countries the COEs are located in.

Currently in Nigeria, Centre for Ultrasound Research and Education, WFUMB COE in Nigeria, in recognition of its capacity building activities since 2012, has been given the task of building capacity in rural setting midwives to enable them carry out limited obstetric ultrasonography in pregnant women for purposes of determining the status of their pregnancy for purposes of either managing them locally of referring them to secondary or tertiary Centres, if any abnormality is detected, for further management. Thus, the education mandate of WFUMB is fulfilled.

Mongolia WFUMB COE

Mongolia WFUMB COE

ABOUT MONGOLIA ….

Mongolia is a landlocked country bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south, east and west. By the end of 2016, Mongolia has a population of 3,119,900 spread over an area of 1,566 460 sq/km giving a population density of 1.99 per sq/km. 68.9% of the total population live in cities and the remaining 31.1% reside in the rural areas.

The main aims of health services in Mongolia are the provision of accessible, equitable and quality services to everyone.

The priority of Mongolian health sector is to provide primary health care services to citizens. The health system of Mongolia is based on a two-tier model that provides health services at primary and secondary/tertiary levels:

• Primary health care is delivered by family health centres, soum/rural health centers and intersoum hospitals.

• Secondary health care is provided by district and aimag/provincial general hospitals, rural general hospitals.

• Tertiary health care is delivered by multispecialty central hospitals and specialized centers in capital city of Ulaanbaatar.

Patient pathways

Official patient pathway in Mongolia is based on three layer system in order to improve the system efficiency and encourage public health priority. There are some differences between the patient pathways in rural and urban areas due to the structural differences in primary health care provision, which reflects geographical circumstances.

Family health centers (FHCs), provide primary care services for the people who live in the capital city and the aimag/provincial centres, while soum/rural health centers provide a wider range of primary care services to the rural population. The primary care services include outpatient exams, primary diagnostic services, antenatal care, family planning, the prescription of essential drugs, counselling, reassessment check-ups, home visits, palliative care, referrals to district hospitals, and health education and promotion.

A peculiarity of rural PHC in Mongolia is that the soum health centers provide not only outpatient services but also inpatient services for the rural population.

This is mostly because of the geographic and demographic features of Mongolia where the rural population is sparsely distributed over a huge area and they need some inpatient services before travelling long distances to get secondary inpatient care in aimag/provincial hospitals.

The specific challenge of rural primary care is to meet the various health needs of the scattered and distant nomads.

Basic US training for primary health care practitioners

With use of portable ultrasonography machines at the primary health care settings, the need for education and training for primary health care practitioners became important.

During the Congress of WFUMB held in San Paolo in May 2013, Mongolian Society of Diagnostic Ultrasound (MSDU) put in for establishing Center of Education (COE) in Mongolia. WFUMB COE Mongolia established on 25 August 2013 at the Urguu Maternity Hospital No1 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Since that WFUMB COE Mongolia has conducted a training for primary health care practitioners three times a year for 3 months. 320 doctors were trained. Out of them 80 were rural doctors and 240 family doctors.

Uganda WFUMB COE. Est 2004

Uganda WFUMB COE. Est 2004

by Admin

Kampala WFUMB COE was launched in October 2004 with subsequent regular renewals. The aim of the WFUMB COE is to offer formal and continuing medical education (CME) courses in ultrasound.

Formal courses are offered at certificate, diploma and Bachelors and Master’s degree levels. Continuing medical education courses are offered twice a year aimed at refreshing participants’ ultrasound knowledge and skills and at training the trainers. The COE regularly sends reports of its activities to the WFUMB and communicates with other WFUMB COEs.

The COE is under UGASON (Uganda Society for Sonography). ECUREI is the training centre for the COE. ECUREI stands for “Ernest Cook Ultrasound Research and Education Institute”. Ernest Cook was British missionary brought first X-ray machine to Uganda, in year 1910.

To date the COE has trained a total of 1,040 ultrasound users since its inception in 2004. This year, the COE held its first refresher course on with the theme “Vascular Ultrasound”. The second refresher course will run on 02/09/2017 with the theme “Chest Ultrasound”.

Last year in October, ECUREI graduated its first Bachelor’s of ultrasound degree students. This year in October, ECUREI will graduate its first Masters of Diagnostic Ultrasound students.

The main challenge facing the COE is the low ratio of ultrasound machines to numbers of students. ECUREI acquired 3 ultrasound machines this year one through a donation and two purchased by ECUREI.
