Preterm birth: improving immediate care

This symposium will present and discuss research conducted as part of a programme of work funded by the National Institute for Health Research. The focus is improving the quality of care and outcome, for babies and their families, at very preterm birth (before 32 weeks gestation).

The aim is to bring together clinicians, parents, and researchers to discuss the research, and to consider implications for implementation and for future research.
