RPA Yield - Health
Health problems interfere with children’s normal development.
Within Yield, our research programme conducts research on the development of children with chronic or life-threatening diseases.
Themes of research are:
- the long term consequences (e.g. achievement of developmental milestones and transition, social status and job-participation),
- parental attitude and interaction,
- screening for psychosocial problems, and
- neurocognitive impairment.
Tools to study or influence these outcomes are specific interventions, patient/parent reported outcome in clinical practice and the use of internet/websites. Main focus is on further development, implementation and evaluation of intervention programmes.
