Abstract

High-risk pregnancies are increasing and form a significant proportion of the pregnant patient population. Compendium for the Antenatal Care of High-Risk Pregnancies takes a unique approach to over 140 conditions, combining 'Fact Files', 'Care Pathways', and 'Information for Patients' in one volume. The book is designed to provide a practical and accessible individualised framework of information for doctors in busy clinical environments, and to integrate the specialist care offered to women with high-risk pregnancies. For each condition, the book covers vital points on risk reduction, clinical governance, discussion with patients, and required documentation. This is important in a litigious environment with high patient expectations, and demonstrates how clinical governance and risk management are interwoven in daily clinical practice.
