Unique opportunity for LLTF Families
LITTLE ONES: THE JOY AND CHALLENGE FOR PARENTS AND FAMILIES RAISING BABIES AND CHILDREN BORN PRETERM
FREE FAMILY SEMINAR / Q & A SESSION
A expert panel of world leaders in “Outcome following preterm birth” will answer questions from parents and family members regarding long-term outcomes for preterm children
“Not to be missed”
In Australia almost 10 per cent of babies are born premature. Some, particularly those born very early, can require intensive care for many months before going home.
In this seminar, findings from the VIBeS team will be presented describing the common challenges faced by children born early, as well as the emotional toll on parents and families. New treatment programs for these families will be outlined, and the role that families can play will be discussed.
“A fantastic opportunity for all families of preterm children”
Families will have a unique opportunity to interact with this expert panel of health professionals, ask questions, discuss their issues and concerns in a Q & A session.
There will also be a morning tea after, during this time parents and family members can have individual discussions with these experts, as well as others from the VIBeS team.”
LLTF Ambassador, A/Professor Peter Anderson who will present this seminar is Group Leader of the Victorian Infant Brain Studies (VIBeS) team at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute (MCRI). The VIBeS team is dedicated to developing intervention programs to prevent or minimize developmental issues that are common in these children, and to support mental health and adjustment in the families of preterm children.
