MS CHUNG MI-MI
IVF CO-ORDINATOR / STAFF NURSE
I completed my Certificate in Nursing Studies in 1992 and have been a Registered Nurse for 24 years. After completing my studies, I worked in various organisations including Singapore Civil Defence Force, Private Nursing and Obstetric & Gynaecology/Infertility for 6.1/2 years before joining Noel Leong Fertility & IVF Clinic in March 2014 and since then I have been working as his IVF co-ordinator and clinic staff nurse.
My role in the clinic includes updating patients’ records, dispensing of medication and administering injections, reminding patients of their appointments and liaising with hospitals when patients are admitted for surgery or other diagnostic tests. As an IVF co-ordinator, I work hand in hand with Dr Leong in implementing treatment plans according to IVF protocols.
I arrange appointments for the patients who are coming for our programme and follow up scans for monitoring of follicles. I supervise and ensure that patients understand their medication regimes, that they adhere to set procedures and guide them on how to administer injections on themselves. I also work closely with the staff of Thomson Fertility Centre in order that our patients will have a smooth journey throughout their treatment plan.
I feel a sense of satisfaction and achievement when patients come to me for advice and I am able to encourage and guide them to alleviate their anxieties. My personal goal is seeing programme patient get pregnant and achieve their goals of parenthood.
