The Two Hearts Beat Study: Determining the Feasibility of Echocardiographic Screening in Pregnancy for Women at High Risk of Rheumatic Heart Disease Living in the Top End of the Northern Territory

Project: HDR ProjectPhD

Project Details


My research explores the development, implementation and evaluation of echocardiographic screening for rheumatic heart disease (RHD) during pregnancy in high-risk women in the Northern Territory (NT). This involves a prospective, pragmatic intervention study evaluating the training for and use of focused, limited cardiac ultrasound performed by obstetric healthcare staff to identify RHD during routine antenatal care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
