Child Growth and Development in East London (CGDEL).
The overarching objective of this project is to detect poor growth and delayed development early in childhood by developing an automated growth-screening algorithm. The screening algorithm will be created using cohort data and piloted for feasibility and acceptability in Tower Hamlets. The ultimate goals are to detect linear growth failure and delayed development early to identify two groups of children: first, children with serious underlying medical disorders, in whom earlier diagnosis and management would improve clinical outcomes; and second, children whose poor growth and/or delayed development is a manifestation of socioeconomic disadvantage, in whom targeted pre-school interventions may improve long term health and education outcomes.
