IMPROVING HEALTH FOR VERY PRETERM CHILDREN IN EUROPE

The EPICE and SHIPS projects carry out research on the use of evidence-based health care for very preterm infants with a European cohort of very preterm infants born in 2011/2012.

The Screening to Improve Health In very Preterm InfantS in Europe (SHIPS) project aims to improve follow-up programmes in Europe by studying their impact on children and their families. Follow-up screening and prevention programmes identify health problems early, enable interventions to improve health and development and allow optimal management of health care.

The SHIPS consortium includes clinicians, researchers and parent representatives from 19 regions in 11 European countries.
