Beskrivning av projektet
The overarching aim of our project is to assess the physical and mental health and social challenges posed by preterm birth from birth up to middle age. We link data from Medical Birth Registries of Finland, Norway and Sweden with social and healthcare registers of each country and use up-to-date techniques for secure data access and modern statistical methods to analyse data from these three countries in a simultaneous analysis. A part of the analysis will compare individuals born preterm with their siblings born at term. We put particular focus on providing novel information on developmental trajectories that may render an individual vulnerable or resilient to the consequences associated with preterm birth.
