The focus of the MOM-LINC Lab program is three fold:
1. Examination of the most effective maternal-led interventions, alone or in combination, to improve outcomes in health and at-risk infants related to stress, pain and neurodevelopment.
2. Development of a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying the efficacy of maternally-led interventions, primarily related to unravelling the epigenetic impact of early life stressors and potential protective factors.
3. Development of strategies to improve the uptake of best practice interventions by both parents and health care providers through mobilization of knowledge, with a focus on using e-Health technology.
