Formatted abstract
Aim:
To systematically review the efficacy of parenting interventions in improving the quality of the relationship between mothers and preterm infants.

Method:
Randomized or quasi-randomized controlled trials (RCT) of parenting interventions for mothers of preterm infants where mother-infant relationship quality outcomes were reported.

Databases searched:
The Cochrane Library, PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO and Web of Science.

Results:
Seventeen studies met the inclusion criteria, 14 with strong methodological quality. Eight parenting interventions were found to improve the quality of the mother-preterm infant relationship.

Conclusions:
Heterogeneity of the interventions calls for an integrated new parenting program focusing on cue-based, responsive care from the mother to her preterm infant to improve the quality of the relationship for these mother-preterm infant dyads.
