ITM Alumni webinar #2 Prize for Global Research 2023 - Kehinde Okunade
This new series of ITM alumni webinars features the four ITM winners of the Prize for Global Research 2023. In webinar #2, MTM-alumnus and laureate Kehinde Sharafadeen Okunade (Nigeria) will share insights from his master thesis, entitled "Development of Antepartum Risk Prediction Model for Postpartum Haemorrhage in Lagos, Nigeria (Predict-PPH study)".
Maternal postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality in Nigeria and worldwide. There is currently a limited ability to accurately identify women at risk of this obstetric complication. Kehinde Okunade conducted the “predict-PPH” study to determine the prevalence and predictors of PPH, develop an antepartum prediction model, and then evaluate the performance of the model and its derived risk-scoring system. Kehinde will present the main findings and outcomes of his thesis.
The Q&A-session, moderated by his thesis supervisor Tom Decroo, will enable to answer questions from the audience and to share experiences from other contexts.
