This project evaluates health and neurodevelopmental problems in preterm children by collecting all clinical data from birth and using these to set up a single database.

The cohort includes preterm children born before 30 weeks of gestation and with a birth weight below 1000 grams. The children have several health problems, including neurodevelopmental problems, impaired growth, impaired lung function, and cardiac problems.

The main aim of this study is to:

  • Improve care for this vulnerable group;
  • Identify frequently occurring problems;
  • Identify risk factors.

Collaboration with regional hospitals

The clinical follow-up programme allows the study of preterm children and the collection of data regarding risk factors and health problems, based on which a single database is set up. In collaboration with regional hospitals, this project provides insight into and helps to improve the nature and course of the health problems in this patient group.
