Nurses and midwives are encouraged to complete an online survey aiming to identify the top 10 research priorities when it comes to twin and multiple-birth health.
The survey marks phase two of the Global Twins and Multiples Priority Setting Partnership, which is bringing together twins, higher-order multiples, parents, carers, clinicians and scientists in a bid to reduce twin and multiple mortality and morbidity and improve long-term health outcomes.
Nurses and midwives are invited to complete a 15-minute online survey and circulate it amongst patients, clinicians or colleagues.
Part two of the survey asks participants to rank up to 10 important unanswered research questions on the health of multiples, including development, health, disease, and emotional and mental wellbeing.
The partnership believes there has been insufficient focus and attention given to the specific health needs of the multiple-birth community even though the number of multiple births has increased over time. The disadvantage experienced by multiple-birth families is discussed further here.
