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!

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?

• 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.
