This guideline has been updated to include the latest evidence-based research to guide clinical practice for the screening, diagnosis and treatment of pre-eclampsia and hypertension in pregnancy in New Zealand. The guideline is designed for health professionals to use to support clinical judgement, knowledge and expertise, and provide a consistent approach for screening, management and treatment.


This guideline has been updated to include Te Tiriti o Waitangi and equity, recognising Te Whatu Ora’s obligations under Te Tiriti o Waitangi. It also includes the use of gender additive language. They should be used in conjunction with Ngā paerewa Health and disability services standard 8134:2021 (Ngā paerewa).


The review process was supported by a technical advisory group and a multi-disciplinary steering group and wide-spread stakeholder consultation and feedback. Te Whatu Ora would like to thank everyone that has been involved with the update and those that have provided feedback.


This webinar is useful to support practitioners with understanding the clinical practice guideline, its development and implementation.
