by Edeborg, Maria; Westh, Helen

Abstract (Summary)
The aim of this literature review was primarily to describe how the nurse can involve the parents in the care for their premature baby, and secondly to describe the aim, design, method, population and quality of the reviewed studies. Searches have been made in different databases in order to find articles where the search words ”neonatal care”, ”neonatalvård”, ”premature infants” and ”nurse” were included. The literature review was based on 12 scientific articles. The results of the study were divided into six categories; The nursing staff’s relation to the parents, Support group, “Home-early program”, Decision-making, A work in progress and A safe and efficient method. It is the nurse’s task to create a trusting relationship to the parents. The parents’ relationship to the child is a determining factor in its development. Some of the studies described how support groups can be used to help families with premature children. The studies showed that parents want to be involved in making decisions about their baby, but they also find it frightening. There are a lot of ways for the nurse to involve parents in the care for their premature baby. It is very important that the parents get sufficient information, which will enable them to be active when decisions are made about their baby.
