It is well documented that the risk of premature birth for multiple birth pregnancies is higher than that for singleton pregnancies. Multiple-birth families are five times more likely to experience pre-term birth and low birthweight, which occurs in 50% of all twin births and nearly all (95%) triplet and higher order multiple births.
The Australian Multiple Birth Association is proud to support the researchers from the Nurturing ChAMPs Study at The University of Queensland (Australia) who are seeking parents to help them to better understand the well-being of preemie children who are now 3 – 18 years old.
What is the study about?
Researchers from the Nurturing ChAMPs Study at The University of Queensland (Australia) sought parents to help them to better understand the well-being of preemie children who are now 3 – 18 years old.
Behavioural and emotional well-being of children and adolescents can have far-reaching effects on their everyday life including being able to make friends and doing well in school or in the home.
The objective of this research study is to better understand the development of behavioural and emotional difficulties. This study is part of a doctoral research project at the School of Psychology, Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences, The University of Queensland, Australia.
The study procedures have been reviewed by experts and approved by the university ethics committee under #2019001214.
Recruitment for the study ceased in March 2020.
