RISEinFAMILY

About us

The RISEinFamily project

The project gathers an international, interdisciplinar and intersectoral network of organizations working on a joint research programme for the improvement of parents and high-risk neonates health quality and humanization of care in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs).

The core of the project is scaling up and implementing the Family Integrated Care (FICare) model (O’Brien et al., 2018) at a broad social- and cultural contexts. The proof-of-principle lies on the healing power of parent-child relationship by letting parents be parents even when in NICU.

This means that the family will get the control of the upbringing of their child, both from the emotional dimension and from the operational point of view.

The expansion of FICare model requires further research to understand the barriers and facilitators that may constrain its adoption, especially in low and middle countries with very different sociocultural contexts.
