Western Sydney University is conducting a study to explore the experiences of fathers of premature infants. If you are a father of a premature infant who has spent time in an NICU facility in Australia, we would like to invite you to complete an online survey. Mothers, please encourage your partners to participate.To be eligible for the study you must be a father of an infant aged 12 months or younger (corrected or actual), who was born premature and had spent time in the NICU. In addition to this requirement, your child must be discharged from hospital and currently residing at home. The online survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.Results from this study will contribute to furthering our understanding support provisions that may be especially useful for supporting fathers in gaining confidence in parenting premature infants post discharge.
