Improvement of practice surrounding unintended pregnancy and vulnerable parenthood

This project is focused on a multidisciplinary approach around the support and care for unintended pregnancies and vulnerable parenthood in The Hague. The project seeks to put into place a better collaboration between professionals working in the medical and social sectors, through which support for unintended pregnancies can be improved with already existing interventions. This will be accomplished by the development of a multidisciplinary learning network and the use of reflective monitoring.
