Early Pregnancy Assessment UnitsEdey, Katharine MRCOG; Draycott, Tim MD, MRCOG; Akande, Valentine PhD, MRCOGClinical Obstetrics & Gynecology: March 2007 - Volume 50 - Issue 1 - pp 146-153 doi: 10.1097/GRF.0b013e3180305ef4 First Trimester Pregnancy Complications Abstract Author Information The advent of a 1-stop approach to managing women with early pregnancy problems led to the development of early pregnancy clinics. Such clinics progressed to providing a patient centered approach, minimising inpatient admissions while providing women with an early diagnosis of miscarriage or extrauterine pregnancy by a multiprofessional group of individuals with expertise in this area. The clinic structure, referral process, and ongoing challenges are discussed.
