Project Overview

Through the use of the MiCare database and information collected from Year 0, project 1 looks to examine the evidence related to how patient risks and therapeutic factors during pregnancy, childbirth, and infancy interact and affect long-term infant developmental outcomes. It will also examine variations in outcomes and how these are linked to practices. The results will provide insight into how practice change interventions can be designed to improve long-term outcomes for preterm infants in Project 3.


1. To study how biologial, sociodemographic, environmental and treatment risks interact to affect long-term outcomes, and their relationships to short-term NICU outcomes

2. To study variations in long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes in Canadian NICU's

3. To identify practices associated with good or poor long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes
