Abstract

Follow-up programs in Canada collect audit and outcome research data, and provide clinical and preventive health care to extremely premature survivors and other new survivors of neonatal intensive care. Results of a 2001 to 2002 survey of Canadian follow-up programs showed a tremendous variation in the patient populations seen, the timing of visits and the evaluations performed. A description of the new Quebec consortium of follow-up programs is provided and possible future directions are discussed.
