About the Study

e-TIPCS is a multisite study developed by a team at Newcastle University and made possible by an NIHR Career Development Fellowship to Dr Anna Basu. It was initially funded by the United Kingdom National Institute of Health Research, and currently includes the SMILE Lab as a.recruiting partner. The study involves babies aged 0-6 months who have had a perinatal stroke and their families and carers. 


eTIPS is a home based parent-delivered intervention for babies affected by perinatal stroke. Families involved are given developmental resources relevant to their baby's condition and additional support and advice throughout. 

the SMILE Lab is undertaking a parallel feasibility study - so we have translated all of the family materials into Italian! An educational package for therapists and community health professionals is being developed, thanks to further funding from the Tiny Lives Charity.
