Quality Assurance Programs

The College, often working with external partners, runs a number of short-term projects and long-term programs, some of which are highlighted here, with the aim of supporting the delivery of excellence in women’s health.
New-C-QuIP-Logo.jpg CQuIP aims to improve the care of women who are referred for colposcopy and treatment of screen-detected abnormalities. This involves: developing certification programs; developing audit for health professionals performing colposcopy; supporting practitioners to improve their performance; and providing an online education program for all professionals performing colposcopy.
FSEP Inadequate or inappropriate use of intrapartum fetal surveillance is too often a feature of adverse obstetric outcomes in Australia and New Zealand. FSEP aims to improve professional levels of understanding and confidence in the area of fetal surveillance, thereby reducing the risks of adverse perinatal outcomes, by providing training and educational resources.
The PROMPT course focuses on the essential clinical, communication and teamwork skills required by a multidisciplinary maternity care team, to improve the management and outcomes of obstetric emergencies.  Please contact us for all Australian PROMPT enquiries.

The PROMPT program is run under license from  PROMPT Maternity Foundation UK.
The Nuchal Translucency, Ultrasound, Education and Monitoring Program (NTUEMP) audits the performance of the Nuchal Translucency (NT) scan for operators using the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF) software for the calculation of risk for Down syndrome using maternal age, nuchal translucency measurement and serum biochemistry in Australia. The NT scan is used in the first trimester (between 11 and 14 weeks) to determine the risk of Down syndrome, Trisomy 18 and Trisomy 13.
