Abstract

The purpose of this article is to examine how nurses can improve comprehensive care for women who suffer an early pregnancy loss in the emergency department and highlight the integral role of obstetric and emergency department nurses within a new holistic framework of collaborative care. These nurses are integral in the proposed collaborative " fetal loss framework," which provides an innovative approach for holistic care for this population.
