This one-day theoretical training course focuses on the outpatient management of miscarriage and abortion using manual vacuum aspiration (MVA).
MVA is an alternative to electric suction or dilatation and curettage for evacuation of the uterine contents. The MVA procedure is performed with a hand-operated vacuum syringe, typically under local anaesthetic, in a treatment room.
With the high safety profile of this procedure and the increasing potential for the delivery of uterine evacuation outside of theatre, there is a need to improve access to MVA in the UK. In addition to providing essential learning in the MVA procedure, this course covers the equipment, staffing, analgesia and other requirements for surgical uterine evacuation in an outpatient setting.
We recommend you book early to avoid disappointment. There are a maximum of 32 places for this event that regularly sells out.
