Description

OBJECTIVE: To test our hypothesis that an innovative method of early palliative care called "Baby, Attachment, Comfort Interventions" reduces psychological distress in parents of neonates with congenital heart disease. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study of parents of neonates with congenital heart disease. Distress was evaluated at admission and discharge using Neonatal Unit Parental Stressor Scale and Depression Anxiety Stress Index-21. Control parents received standard of care. Intervention parents received interdisciplinary interventions aimed at improving neonatal comfort and parenting experience.
