Journal of Advanced Nursing, vol. 77, no 7, p. 3192-3203.
Intentions : «The primary objective of this pilot study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of the NeuroN-QI [a nurturing and quiet intervention to promote infant neurodevelopment] and the study procedures. The secondary objectives are to assess the feasibility and acceptability of the NeuroN-QI by the nurses, assess the nurses’ training needs about the components of the NeuroN-QI, and estimate the preliminary effects of the NeuroN-QI on infants’ neurodevelopment as well as maternal stress and anxiety at infants’ 36 weeks of gestational age.» (p. 3194)
Échantillon/Matériau : This pilot study «will be conducted in two level-III NICUs [Neonatal Intensive Care Unit] of university-affiliated hospitals in Montréal, Québec, Canada with the same NICU design: 80 single-family rooms [SFR] in one NICU and 52 SFR in the other.» (p. 3194) «Infants will be eligible if they are born between 26-and 316/7-weeks GA [of gestational age].» (p. 3195) «A total of 30 mother–infant dyads will be recruited […].» (p. 3198)
Type de traitement des données : Analyse statistique
This pilot study «will assess the feasibility and acceptability of the NeuroN-QI and study procedures, as well as estimate the preliminary effects of a specific combination of DC [developmental care] interventions on preterm infants’ neurodevelopment and mothers’ levels of stress and anxiety. [The] pilot study will also identify neonatal nurses’ knowledge needs and opportunities to further develop their competencies regarding the DC components of the NeuroN-QI; SSC [Skin-to-skin contact], auditory and olfactive stimulation, and quiet period with controlled light and noise levels.» (p. 3199) «[The] pilot RCT [randomized clinical trial] is an innovative step toward evaluating a feasible and acceptable nursing intervention to guide neonatal clinical care and will be fundamental to guide the full-scale RCT evaluating the NeuroN-QI intervention’ effects.» (p. 3199-3200)
