TRANSFER Study launched to assess the incidence of threatened extreme preterm birth
Clinicians from the Universities of Birmingham and Bristol, working with the Birmingham Centre for Observational and Prospective Studies BiCOPS (BiCOPS) are undertaking a study to assess the incidence of threatened preterm birth in women presenting at 22+0-23+6 weeks’ gestation to inform the need for in utero transfer.
The TRANSFER study (ThReatened preterm birth, Assessment of the Need for in utero tranSFER between 22+0-23+6 weeks’ gestation) is being undertaken by a group of senior clinicians in obstetrics and neonatology in response to the important recommendation by the British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM), to follow a risk based approach for decisions about care pathways following delivery for the most extremely preterm infants.
The study is observational and units are invited to take part via the following links.
