APEC International

A new paper has just been released on a study asking women for their views on testing and management of hypertensive disorders. It is a collaborative paper in conjunction with the pre-eclampsia foundation and women registered with the pre-eclampsia registry.

The Abstract was: ” Advances in research suggest the possibility of improving routine clinical care for preeclampsia using screening (predictive) and diagnostic tests. The views of women should be incorporated into the way in which such tests are used. Therefore, we explored the views of women with experience of preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders in pregnancy (HDPs) about predictive and diagnostic tests, treatment risks, and expectant management. “
