August, 2017

AMOSS' Geri Vaughan and  RHDAustralia's Vicki Wade uncover the realities of RHD today in this blog post for Nurse Uncut.

This blog piece highlights principles of care for pregnant women with RHD and why early diagnosis and collaborative care is so important. It reflects on why an improved workforce representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander midwives and obstetricians is so critical to better outcomes for Aboriginal mums and bubs.
