Fayiza K T  | Indu P C
Abstract: Prematurity is a major cause of neonatal mortality as well as a significant contributor to long term adverse health outcomes. At present prematurity has been noted to be the most common cause of under - five mortality globally. So that quality of care at birth or skilled care and treatment immediately after birth to first days of life are crucial to save the life of neonates.4This is a non - randomized quantitative quasi experimental study conducted to assess the effect of clustered preterm care programme on perceived parenting self efficacy among mothers of preterm babies. Methods: Participants were 70mothers of preterm babies admitted in NICU, Govt. Medical College Hospital, Thrissur. Socio personal data were collected using semistructured interview. Effect of clustered preterm care programme was assessed by using modified perceived maternal parenting self - efficacy scale (PMP - SE). Association between perceived parenting self - efficacy among mothers of preterm babies and selected variables were also found. Data were analyzed using descriptive, inferential statistics. Results: The mean age of mothers in control group was 24.89 ? 4.37 and in experimental group it was 25.68 ? 5.02. The mean scores of perceived parenting self - efficacy in control group was 40.31 (SD 3.20) and in experimental group was 54.46 (SD 4.14). Findings revealed significant difference in mean score of perceived maternal parenting self - efficacy among mothers of preterm babies in control and experimental group after the intervention. There was statistically significant association between perceived parenting self - efficacy scores among mothers of preterm babies with selected variables like mode of delivery of mother (?2= 4.33, p=0.044), place of delivery (?2=4.13, p=0.05), number of children (?2=7.83, p=0.048), post natal day of preterm babies (?2=10.2, p=0.003), birth weight of preterm babies (?2=7.83, p=0.015) and gestational age (?2=4.93, p=0.049). Conclusion: There is a significant difference in the mean scores of perceived parenting self - efficacy among mothers of preterm babies in control group and experimental group. There is significant association between perceived parenting self - efficacy among mothers of preterm babies with selected variables of mother such as mode of delivery, place of delivery and number of children and clinical variables of preterm babies which include post - natal age and birth weight.
