dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate parents and nurses perspectives on the psychosocial needs of parents, the extent to which those needs are viewed as met; and to understand the association between parental needs and the infants illness severity for parents with preterm infants born before 32 weeks gestation, in the first 10 days of hospitalization to the neonatal intensive care unit. This cross-sectional, descriptive-correlational, pilot study rated parental needs on an attitudinal scale. Twenty-four parents of preterm infants and 16 neonatal nurses participated in the study. The results showed no statistically significant difference in how parents and nurses reported parental needs in terms of importance. Differences were observed between the ratings of the top ten needs that were identified by parents and nurses. Statistically significant differences were observed in the perception of needs that are considered met. No correlation between parental needs and illness severity was detected.
