The impact of family centred care interventions in a neonatal or paediatric intensive care unit on parents' satisfaction and length of stay: A systematic review



The impact of family centred care interventions in a neonatal or paediatric intensive care unit on parents' satisfaction and length of stay: A systematic review



Intensive and Critical Care Nursing 50: 63-70



To explore the impact of family centred care interventions on parents' satisfaction and length of stay for patients admitted to a paediatric intensive care unit or a neonatal intensive care unit. A systematic review was conducted. Searches have been done in Cinahl, Cochrane, Embase and PubMed from February 2016 till October 2017. All included studies were quality appraised. Due to the heterogeneity of interventions findings were narratively reviewed. Seventeen studies were included in this review of which 12/17 studies investigated parents' satisfaction and 7/17 length of stay. For this review two types of interventions were found. Interventions improving parents-professional collaboration which increased parents' satisfaction, and interventions improving parents' involvement which decreased length of stay. Overall quality of the included studies was weak to good. Strong evidence was found for a significant decrease in length of stay when parents where participating in caring for their infant in a neonatal intensive care unit. Moderate evidence was found in parents' satisfaction, which increased when collaboration between parents and professionals at a neonatal intensive care unit improved. Studies performed in a paediatric intensive care setting were of weak to moderate quality and too few to show evidence regarding parents satisfaction and length of stay.
