Parent information binder: individualizing education for parents of preterm infants.

Abstract

To assist the parents of preterm infants at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Canada, we have developed a unique and creative method of individualizing parent information: The parent information binder (PIB). This method has supported a shift from nurse-directed education to parents as partners in their own education. Parents and health care professionals utilize the PIB collaboratively to facilitate organization and collection of information, which is individualized according to the infant's level of wellness and the parents' readiness to receive the information. This approach empowers parents to be active and integral participants in decisions regarding their infants' hospital care.
