The main purpose of implementing the Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program (NIDCAP) in our neonatal intensive care unit from the perspective of quality of care was to bring about an improvement in the satisfaction of parents. This was measured by means of the NICU-Parent Satisfaction Form and the Nurse Parent Support Tool. Parents were significantly more satisfied with care given according to NIDCAP principles than they were with the traditional care for their premature born babies.
