Clinical Trial Summary

Randomized cross-over clinical trial to determine the effect of a nurse-administered comforting touch intervention on the biobehavioral stress responses of preterm infants hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit.


Clinical Trial Description

Preterm infants will receive one episode of essential nursing care as standard care and one episode of essential nursing care that includes a nurse-administered comforting touch intervention approximately 24 hours apart in a randomized sequence. For 10 minutes prior to the start of the two observed care episodes, during the care episodes, and for 60 minutes after the conclusion of the care episodes, researchers will measure infants' biobehavioral stress responses. ;
