Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) Collaborative

This call is being led by Dr. Nelin at Nationwide Children’s. The BPD Collaborative is a collection of 9 centers in the US that have multidisciplinary teams dedicated to optimizing outcomes of infants and children with severe BPD. Its mission is improving the life-long outcomes of babies who develop severe BPD by fostering collaboration and innovation in the identification and treatment through the sharing of data, the development and implementation of quality improvement initiatives, as well as fostering research protocols to address the most pressing gaps in our knowledge.

The hope with the call is to begin to interact with parents of patients with severe BPD to get their input on direction, priorities for clinical care and research, etc.

Join by phone:

We are looking forward to the call and to the development of a parent’s advisory group for severe BPD.
