Preeclampsia – report/recommendation – Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine + Preeclampsia Foundation

Publications & Guidelines, SMFM Special Report,

Preeclampsia is a substantial cause of perinatal and maternal morbidity and mortality. The prevalence of this condition has increased over the past several decades. Additional opportunities are needed to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and improve patient care in the setting of preeclampsia. In recognition of the Preeclampsia Foundation’s 20th anniversary and its work to advance preeclampsia research and clinical agendas, a 2-day virtual workshop on preeclampsia was cosponsored by the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and the Preeclampsia Foundation and held January 25-26, 2021 in conjunction with the 41st annual pregnancy meeting. Leaders with expertise in preeclampsia research, obstetrical care, primary care medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, global health, and patient advocacy gathered to discuss preeclampsia prediction, prevention, management, and long-term impacts. The goals of the workshop were to review the following issues and create consensus concerning research and clinical recommendations:  

  •   To present innovative opportunities for research on predicting, preventing, and managing preeclampsia 
  •  To review the benefits and challenges associated with various strategies for preeclampsia prediction, prevention, management, and postpartum follow-up
  •   To identify research gaps for the prediction, prevention, management, and postpartum follow-up of preeclampsia 
  •   To discuss needs and opportunities for research, increasing awareness, and risk mitigation of the long-term effects of preeclampsia 

This report, developed collaboratively between the SMFM and the Preeclampsia Foundation, presents the key findings and consensus-based recommendations from the workshop participants.
