Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month & AHP day

Today we celebrate AHP day, when we appreciate and recognise the extraordinary work of the Allied Health Professional’s Workforce. AHPs include radiographers and so all those working with ultrasound.

It falls in the middle of Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month. MUAM aims to provide the public with a better understanding of ultrasound and also gives ultrasound professionals a chance to celebrate their profession.

As Multi-Medix are specialists in Ultrasound, it is our month too. Here is what Multi-Medix is doing during October:

AHP Day Rainbow Probe cakesCakes

A celebration would not be complete without cake! Earlier this week we sent cakes to a local NHS hospital to celebrate AHP day 2020.

 

Thank you pin badges

At Multi-Medix we began to recognise the work of sonographers worldwide earlier in the year by creating the “Ultrasound Rainbow” image and distributing a pin badge globally. This workforce has been on the “frontline” using ultrasound as a key diagnostic tool during the Covid-19 pandemic. Often seen as one of the many “unsung heros”, we felt it was essential to thank them. With over 5000 badges sent worldwide, we they will be worn with pride today and this month especially!

Diagnostic Ultrasound Quality Assurance Manual – coming soon

Multi-Medix Ltd is putting the finishing touches to the first, universal Diagnostic Ultrasound QA Manual in accordance with BMUS, AIUM, EFSUMB and IPEM Guidance.

What does the manual cover?
• Practical guidance to understanding, implementing, and undertaking ultrasound QA.
• Access all the required procedures and forms
• Video ‘How to’ guides

Darren Woolley and Dr Nick Dudley have worked together to produce an accessible manual with the goal to improve patient safety worldwide.

Dr Nick Dudley is an ultrasound physicist, with 40 years-experience, with over 50 peer-reviewed publications, and has contributed to ultrasound QA guidelines in the UK and Europe.

Darren Woolley has over 25 years’ experience maintaining and managing medical equipment. He implemented the UK’s first ISO 13485 certified ultrasound probe lab and is a now a leading authority on electronic probe testing, including identification of counterfeit and unsafe probes.

Nick explained, “Darren and I have collaborated on research over the last 6 years and we are both passionate about helping all ultrasound users confidently implement a QA programme, which will ensure compliance and safeguard the patient. The Manual, and its accompanying videos, provide ultrasound users worldwide with QA processes that are easy to implement.”

The Manual is accompanied by ‘how to’ videos, procedures, and forms, located together on-line in a single place. Multi-Medix has made it as easy as possible for ultrasound users to implement QA and make it an ongoing, integral part of their clinical operation.

The Manual is the first stage of ongoing work by Multi-Medix to raise awareness of ultrasound QA and further educational resources will be delivered in the future.

The Diagnostic Ultrasound Quality Assurance Manual is available from November 2020, to request a copy go to http://multi-medix.com/quality-assurance-contact-form/

Global interest in the Ultrasound Rainbow Probe Badge

As Medical Ultrasound Month #MUAM and the launch of our User QA Manual approaches, we thought it would be timely to take a look back over the last few months.

In the spring when Covid-19 was declared a worldwide pandemic, healthcare systems across the globe came under serious strain. Many did not realise how ultrasound imaging became a key diagnostic tool to identify Covid-19 in patients.  However, as an ultrasound company we felt a sense of responsibility to make sure the ultrasound community was recognised, and thanked.   Thus, the “Ultrasound Rainbow Probe” badge was manufactured as a symbol of thanks, but also to recognise how hard the community strived to maintain patient care and quality.

Badges were sent to each NHS trust with an imaging department in the UK. News spread via our website and social media and 5,000 badges were quickly gone requiring us to order 2,500 more.

We have now sent badges to the United States of America, Brazil, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Zambia, Ghana, Kenya, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and all the way to Australia to name but a few countries. The response and enthusiasm towards the Rainbow Probe badge have been amazing, and some of the pictures we have received have been heart-warming.

As a further thank you, we have written an Ultrasound Quality Assurance Manual.  It aims to provide clear information and practical guidelines for implementing ultrasound QA, and will be distributed from November 2020.

Ultrasound Rainbow Probe

Ultrasound Rainbow Probe

Today, Multi-Medix completed its first wave of sending out “Ultrasound Rainbow Probe” badges, with a a thank you card, to those that have worked with ultrasound during the Covid-19 pandemic.

All UK NHS Hospitals have now been sent badges and thank you cards.   If you would like more badges for your team, please email us at info@multi-medix.com with your name, address and the number of badges you would like.

A message from our MD, Darren Woolley about the “Ultrasound Rainbow Probe” badges:

During the course of the pandemic we know that ultrasound has become an essential diagnostic tool for Covid 19 patients.  Alongside other professions, sonographers have been on the “frontline”, whilst maintaining traditional scanning during these challenging times. 

Your work has not gone unnoticed, and we are writing to express our gratitude and thanks to all hospital ultrasound departments and teams.

Whilst we have regularly commended and clapped to show our gratitude for all staff and keyworkers, as an ultrasound company we wanted to find a way to recognise the ultrasound community specifically – as a result the “rainbow probe” image was created.

The image symbolises the ultrasound community’s commitment to patient care and quality – now, and in the future.

We have also created a book on Ultrasound Quality Assurance.  It aims to provide clear information and practical guidelines for implementing QA, which is essential for ultrasound, and will be distributed later in the year.
