$4 million nursing grant focuses on at-risk premature infants
Date:10/4/2007

it's a stressful and difficult time from 32 weeks, when premature infants begin oral feeding, through approximately one month after going home from the hospital," White-Traut said. "Mothers have identified this time that they would benefit from ongoing support."

H-HOPE is innovative, White-Traut said, because it is the first study to simultaneously incorporate programs for both mother and premature infants and evaluate the outcomes for both.

"The synergistic effect of the two models should lead to the infant becoming more mature at a faster rate and reducing the time of stay in the hospital," she said. "It should also improve how a mother recognizes her premature infant's behavioral cues, provide mothers with a greater confidence in caring for their infants, give them a more positive perception of the infant, and lower their levels of anxiety."

If successful, H-HOPE will provide a national model for improving early infant health and development, as well as reduce health care costs, White-Traut said.

"Preterm infants have an average initial hospitalization of three weeks," she said. "Reducing hospital stays by just three days could save more than $2 billion dollars a year."
