Parent perspectives of neonatal tele-homecare: A qualitative study.
J Telemed Telecare. 2019 May; 25(4):221-229.JT

Abstract

INTRODUCTION

Neonatal homecare for preterm infants is a method of supporting families and monitoring infant growth in the home setting. Telehealth may be used to deliver specialist neonatal care remotely, using online communication methods. This study explored parental experiences with neonatal tele-homecare (NTH).

METHODS

Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 49 parents whose preterm infants had received NTH from a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in Denmark. Interview transcripts were analysed using Malterud's systematic text condensation.

RESULTS

Parents experienced NTH as a personalised method for linking to specialist staff in the NICU. NTH promoted the parent's role as the primary care provider, further strengthening the parent-infant relationship.

DISCUSSION

From the perspective of parents with preterm infants requiring specialist care, NTH is a useful method of supporting families in the home. Telehealth provides effective communication links with NICU specialists and encourages family-centred care.
