Hospitals join national pregnancy and RHD study

Date posted: 4 September 2013

Thirty-four hospitals in Western Australia (WA) are participating in the nation's most extensive study into rheumatic heart disease (RHD) in pregnancy.

The study will utilise both quantitative and qualitative methods and will involve more than 300 hospitals across Australia and New Zealand. The study is a part of the Australasian Maternity Outcomes Surveillance System (AMOSS).

The study will have a particular impact on improving health outcomes for Indigenous women, who have among the highest documented rates of RHD in the world.
