Tuesday, March 14th 2023
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is estimated to occur in 69-85% of pregnancies. Hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy and is the main cause of hospitalisation in the first half of pregnancy.

A state wide project is being rolled out by the Ministry of Health with an aim to increase clinician and consumer awareness of the condition and also improve women’s experiences of accessing care.

Learning objectives: at the end of the session participants will be able to:

• Use the PUQE-24 assessment tool to assess and classify the woman’s symptom severity

• Plan a woman’s care using the assessment and management flowchart

• Consider pharmacological treatments that reflect the woman’s symptom pattern
