Hands-On Ultrasound Education Obstetrics (HOUSE OB)

HOUSE has launched a Website!

Visit house.ubccpd.ca to learn about our rural POCUS courses, ultrasound resources for any level of knowledge, and learning opportunities for HOUSE alumni.

What is HOUSE OB?

The Hands-On Ultrasound Education Obstetrics (HOUSE OB) Course was designed specifically for rural health care practitioners who provide maternity care. Participants in the course dramatically improve their management of patients in the third trimester through a series of hands-on sessions with third trimester patient models.

Who should attend the course?

Physicians and midwives who work in rural communities and provide obstetrical care to patients.

What will I learn?

How to use bedside ultrasound to dramatically improve your management of patients in the third trimester by answering these specific questions: Is the fetal presentation head down? Is fetal cardiac activity present? Is the placenta a safe distance from the cervix? Is there a normal amount of amniotic fluid? Is there more than one fetus?
