CLAIRE WASHBOURNE and CAROL COX undertook research to determine what emergency nurses need to know in order to deliver safe care to women with PV bleeding in early pregnancy
Bleeding in early pregnancy is a traumatic experience for women who are expecting the birth of normal healthy babies. Managing this situation can be traumatic for both patients presenting to A&E and the clinicians who must manage them. Emergency nurse practitioners (ENPs) have proven their worth in terms of improving quality of care for many A&E patients and there is now tremendous pressure on them to advance their practice.
