    Day 3 – When a prenatal diagnosis is made: Providing best care

    Training aims
    This new for 2014 study day aims to help participants consider the key factors that will ensure high quality care is in place for women and couples who have had a fetal anomaly diagnosed. The day is interactive and based around a series of ‘real-life’ case studies along with feedback from parents who contact ARC to encourage participants to reflect on their practice and share what they feel might be most helpful to women and couples. Day 3 also explores the latest developments in prenatal testing and the impact these are likely to have on care.

    Learning outcomes
    Attendees of Day 3 training will:

    • Consider some of the complex issues parents face after a prenatal diagnosis
    • Explore the components of the high quality care required for the parents in five ‘real life’ case studies
    • Examine the barriers to providing individualised care
    • Agree on core principles underpinning individualised care
    • Gain insight into some of the latest developments in antenatal testing technologies and their implications for practice
    ARC training Days are £85 per person or just £60 for students. To book or for general enquiries please contact ARC directly on [email protected] or call 020 7713 7356. - Please quote SMNET when you call or email.

    About ARC, Antenatal Results & Choices
    ARC is the only national charity helping parents and professionals through antenatal screening, diagnosis and its consequences.

    OFFERS non-directive individualised information and support to parents who are making decisions around antenatal testing.

    HELPS parents cope with the uncertainty and anxiety which is an inevitable part of the testing process.

    RECOGNISES that expectant parents who are told that their baby has a significant anomaly need emotional support and practical information to make the right decision for them in their individual circumstances about how the pregnancy should proceed.

    GIVES long term support to parents whatever decision is made about the future of their pregnancy through a national helpline, coordinated network of volunteer parent contacts, password-protected internet support forums, face-to-face meetings, regular newsletters and a range of publications for parents and their families.

    PROVIDES specialised training for healthcare professionals so that they can respond both practically and emotionally to parents' needs.

    REPRESENTS the views of ARC parents to Parliament, the media and decision makers.

    Why does ARC exist?
    In the UK approximately 800,000 women become pregnant every year and every one of these women will be offered some form of screening test, such as an ultrasound scan and/or a blood test. As a result more than 40,000 women will be told there is a risk that their baby may not be developing as expected. This causes a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty for expectant parents and their families.
