Does your baby have lung or breathing difficulties?

Opportunity for parents of preemies! Lend your voice to a study that will examine your experiences related to lung or breathing-related health of your premature baby.

You may be able to participate in an interview study if:

  • Your child was born prematurely, between 23 weeks and 27 weeks +6days gestational age AND
  • is currently between 3 months and 12 months corrected age AND
  • has been discharged from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The purpose of this research is to gain insight into the experiences of parents of infants who have breathing or lung-related health problems, and to evaluate the clarity of questions in two questionnaires that will be used in future research studies.

If you qualify for this study, you will be asked to participate in a phone interview lasting up to approximately 90 minutes. Participants who complete the interview will receive a £75 gift card.

This is an important study being conducted by ICON Plc, a health research organisation, and sponsored by Shire, a biopharmaceutical company. This is an exciting opportunity for your voice to be heard for the benefit of premature infants and their families in the future. If you meet the above criteria and would like to participate, please contact
