This Month's QI Story - Chest Physiotherapy on Extremely Premature Infants.

This story describes a QI project undertaken by a group of physiotherapists from Leeds Children's Hospital.

They investigated whether there is a correlation between chest physiotherapy in the first 4 weeks of life and developmental outcome at 2 years of age in babies born before 26+6 weeks gestation.
