Tell it right, start it right - Downs syndrome awareness study day

This RCM accredited study day, provided by the Down’s Syndrome Association, is for all health professionals working in fetal medicine, maternity and neonatal services including midwives, nurses, paediatricians, sonographers and health visitors.

Specific learning outcomes for the day are to ensure that delegates are best equipped to support parents, in-line with their professional guidelines (NICE, 2008) and care pathways.

Tell it Right aims to provide information about

  • Down’s syndrome that is balanced, accurate and up-to-date

  • How best to support expectant parents through the screening process

  • How best to impart information to parents and families, following a pre/post-natal diagnosis of Down’s syndrome

  • Some common issues which may affect a baby with Down’s syndrome in the early weeks of life.

Tell it Right also aims to encourage delegates to reflect on:

  • The decision making process related to screening

  • The parents’ perspective

  • Life for a person with Down’s syndrome

We hope to be joined by parents who will share their experiences and also by a person with Down’s syndrome who will talk about their life.

The study day costs £2 for members and £4 for non-members. Refreshments will be available throughout the day and a CPD certificate will be provided and this will count towards your PD/EV hours.
