PremLife Online Workshop

18 May 2021 10:00-13:00 BST

Location: Microsoft Teams

PremLife are hosting a dissemination workshop to share our research on long-term development after preterm birth. We welcome nurses, educators, charities, families, policymakers, and others interested in premature birth. Topics will include maternal stress, academic skills, personality characteristics, socio-economic status, and more. During the workshop we'll be presenting our findings followed by a Q&A session where we welcome your questions and feedback. After the Q&A session attendees will be organised into breakout rooms where we'll be discussing implications for policy and practice. We might ask questions such as: how can our findings be shared into the wider community to enhance the lives of those born premature and their families? Which of our findings are most important for integrating into UK policy? We'll then bring you back to the main room for an overall discussion and summary.

More information including a program and an event link is coming soon. Please contact for info and to register your place.
