Facilitates collaboration between healthcare and parents
HOPE ParentROP is intended to facilitate collaboration between the parents and healthcare when planning and implementing the scheduled activity plan.
Parents were previously allowed to visit for a few scheduled hours a day. The current goal at the majority of neonatal departments in Sweden for parents to be involved in nursing care so that they can take primary nursing responsibility for their child, as well as being able to live on the ward during the hospital stay. Despite this positive development there is still room for a number of improvements. One area is communication between parents and healthcare staff.
Detailed activity plan
With the support of HOPE App, parents are given a detailed plan that clearly indicates the nursing and care activities they can expect to carry out themselves, at what time and how they are to be carried out.
This is why HOPE App contains many different activities that cover everything from enquiries about the development of the child’s vision and fixation to information about different models for family-centred care, breastfeeding support, information about scheduled screening examinations and results, as well as information about how to interpret the results.
