On September 1, Cynthia Herrick, MD, FACP and collaborators had their work titled “Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes and Postpartum Care as a Pathway to Future Health,” published in “Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology.”
Adverse pregnancy outcomes (APOs) are said to collectively represent “the leading causes of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality.” When APOs occur, disease trajectory can still be altered by primary and secondary prevention strategies. This can offer long-term health outcome improvements.
In the study, Herrick and colleagues take a look at the epidemiology of APOs, evidence-based strategies for clinicians to manage APOs, and future directions for APO research and clinical practice.
