Supporting research on pre-eclampsia
Action on Pre-eclampsia aims to improve the lives of those affected by pre-eclampsia in the UK. Its work includes involvement in research, study days and the provision of online resources
Action on Pre-eclampsia is the UK's leading charity for those affected by the condition. After 30 years, the charity remains committed to finding out the reasons why so many women continue to experience this issue, providing support and educational resources for midwives through study days, online learning and an annual experts day (Action on Pre-eclampsia, 2020a).
The charity receives no statutory funding and relies on the public to do all that it does with a small team based in Evesham. Its largest fundraiser is the London Marathon.
Action on Pre-eclampsia has always recognised the importance of evidence in informing best practice to improve care in pre-eclampsia. Most research funding agencies now expect involvement from patient representatives, including in the development, execution and dissemination of research and its findings. Action on Pre-eclampsia has a unique opportunity to bring this facet to research and is actively involved in many trials and other investigations on pre-eclampsia, both in the UK and internationally. Examples of recent publications can be found on the Action on Pre-eclampsia (2020b) website.
