Preemptive Bereavement Guidance on NICU Mothers' Coping Abilities


This study examines the practice of preemptive bereavement guidance in cases of neonatal complications in the NICU setting. Using the Brief-COPE Scale on mothers parents and healthcare professionals, we explore the impact of this practice on parents' grief and coping, as well as the ethical implications for healthcare providers. Our findings suggest that preemptive bereavement can have positive effects on maternal coping ability, highlighting the need for further research and bereavement guidance programs in this area.
