Nuchal Translucency Quality Assurance – Working Group
PSO is tasked with developing and implementing a nuchal translucency (NT) quality assessment program for first trimester screening in Ontario. Through the implementation of the NTQA program, the PSO will support the Ontario sonography community in the acquisition of quality NT measurements, to provide education and feedback, as well as a means of ongoing QA to the province. The role of the NTQA working group will be to guide and support the PSO in developing and initiating an NTQA program, and to identify pathways for sonographer communication, education and remediation as necessary.
The roles and responsibilities of the NTQA working group include:
• To co-create strategies for disseminating information to sonographers across the province
• To identify opportunities and platforms for sonographer education
• To discuss and contribute to plans for a Ontario-wide NTQA program to include both image and curve auditing aspects
• To provide counsel and insight to the PSP on sonography landscape and identify key metrics for performance assessment
The inaugural meeting of the NTQA working group was held on October 5, 2018.
