Research Projects

The Hyperemesis Gravidarum Priority Setting Partnership (HG PSP) has come together following the 2nd International Colloquium on Hyperemesis Gravidarum held in the UK in October 2017. During this event leading HG researchers as well as patients from around the world agreed that setting Research Priorities for the condition was itself a priority and motivation for such a project was strong.

Let us support your project

Research has been undeniably improved through patient and public involvement in design, recruitment and dissemination. Women who have suffered HG are often highly motivated to take part in research and to collaborate with teams to ensure the research money is well spent and effective. 

We can provide Patient involvement in research design in a number of countries worldwide through our extensive network of patient organisations and affiliated clinicians.
