Family-centred care: partnering with families in the care of small and sick newborns

Onderzoeksoutput: Other scientific journal contribution

Samenvatting

Premature or sick newborns are at risk of developing important long-term morbidities. Developmental care practices are used to diminish stress and to promote brain development in these newborns. Families have a prominent role in these practices, with parents as primary caregiver for their sick or preterm infant. Family-centred care has a positive effect on the outcome of these newborns. It also has a positive effect on the mental status of the parents and on the parent-infant bonding. Family-centred care has different aspects and the implementation demands a mind-shift in all caregivers involved in the care of preterm and sick newborns.
