Perinatal Forum - Auditing Fetal Growth

It has been over two years since the Perinatal Institute commenced the regional roll-out of customised growth charts to improve the antenatal detection of fetal growth restriction. There have since been several audits and publications which provide important feedback. The purpose of this meeting is to disseminate and critically review the evidence, and to discuss implications for clinical practice.
