journal contributionposted on 06.04.2021, 03:15 by Geraldine Vaughan, Angela Dawson, Michael J Peek, Jonathan R Carapetis, Elizabeth A Sullivan
Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is a preventable cardiac condition that escalates risk in pregnancy. Models of care informed by evidence‐based clinical guidelines are essential to optimal health outcomes. There are no published reviews that systematically explore approaches to care provision for pregnant women with RHD and examine reported measures. The review objective was to improve understanding of how attributes of care for these women are reported and how they align with guidelines.
