Ultrasound is an essential element in the diagnostic toolbox. To ensure the patient receives safe and effective care during the ultrasound exam, educators recognize the importance of systematic ultrasound training which provides the user with proficiency in both theoretical and hands-on practical training. In Norway, systematic POCUS training at the university level is limited. This training is very much needed as the portable development of ultrasound equipment has made it more readily available for use to groups of health professionals such as nurses, anesthetists, internal medicine practitioners, surgeons, paramedics, and general practitioners. In June 2021, a team of two sonographers and two medical doctors began implementing ultrasound training at the University of Stavanger, focusing mainly on training POCUS to the Paramedics (Bachelors) and Specialized Nursing (Masters) Programs. This team is passionate about introducing ultrasound as a new, lifelong learning and diagnostic tool in the education of health professionals.

Objectives:

  • Discuss POCUS and its benefits
  • Describe the ultrasound education currently in existing in Norway
  • Discuss the ultrasound training offered at the University of Stavanger
