Joseph B. Stanford “Lessons learned from implementing the vanguard phase of the U.S. National Children’s Study in Utah.”

JBStanford2013

Initial planning and implementation of the U.S. National Children’s Study: Lessons Learned The United States National Children’s Study (NCS) is designed to examine effects of environmental exposures on children’s health and development in a longitudinal cohort. In the initial planning stages, proposed innovations of the NCS relative to other birth cohorts included 1) rigorous population-representative sampling, 2) very detailed assessments of environmental exposure, and 3) preconception and early pregnancy enrollment for more timely and accurate exposure assessment around conception and the early critical windows of embryonic and fetal development. Each of these innovations was implemented during the initial pilot phase of the NCS, call the initial vanguard cohort (IVC), which enrolled 1399 women from 7 different U.S. locations in 2009-2010, resulting in 922 births. I will discuss lessons learned from the IVC experience seeking to implement each of these three innovations, and possible implications for future birth cohort and life-course studies.
