The aim is to improve very preterm infants' survival and long-term health and development by ensuring that available medical knowledge is translated into effective perinatal care. The project will produce empirical data about the uptake of medical interventions in European maternity and neonatal units and new knowledge about catalysts for the adoption of medical knowledge. Its results will provide a methodological and conceptual basis for future scientific work on the effectiveness of intervention strategies.
