Hva har vi publisert fra PEP-studien så langt?

Resultatene fra Prosjekt ekstrem prematur (PEP) har vi til nå i utstrakt grad brukt til å forbedre behandling og oppfølging av for tidlig fødte barn, undervisning av helsepersonell, innspill overfor beslutningstakere og også til barn som er født prematurt og deres foreldre.

Vi har også presentert resultater på nasjonale og internasjonale faglige kongresser, og publisert mange artikler (se oversikt under​).

Flere manuskripter er under vurdering i internasjonale tidsskrifter. Foreløpig er det avlagt tre PhD-grader fra denne studien (se oversikt under), og fem leger holder på med PhD-prosjekter.
