|Longitudinal Study:||LSAC||Title:||Community-based health care costs for children born low birth weight, preterm and/or small for gestational age: Data from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children.||Authors:||Mensah, F
|Issue Date:||19-Apr-2013||Pages:||8||Keywords:||Health Care
|Abstract:||Children born low birthweight, preterm and/or small for gestational age (SGA) sustain substantially increased costs for hospital-based health care and additional educational support in the first few years of life. This is the first study internationally to investigate costs beyond hospital care, to community-based health care and prescription medicines across early and middle childhood with actual cost data, and to examine these costs according to the severity of perinatal risk.||URL:||http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23461342||Keywords:||Health -- Access to services; Health -- Body size, BMI, Body image; Child Development; Children -- Early childhood||Research collection:||Journal Articles|
