FIPRE: Fragile Infant Parent Readiness Evaluation™



Content from the HealthActCHQ Manuals (including norms, proprietary scoring algorithms, weights etc. and related syntax) or items from the surveys themselves may not be included in any appendices, reports, manuscripts or reproduced without expressed written permission from HealthActCHQ.

The Fragile Infant Parental Readiness Evaluation™ (FIPRE) consists of four multi-item scales measuring:

  • NICU support
  • Infant well-being
  • Parent well-being
  • Parent anxiety.

The scales range from three-to-eleven items in length. Using a four level response option, parents are asked to respond to a series of statements and indicate how much each one reflects their experience. Two global items measure family cohesion and anticipated limitations in personal time. There are five standard demographic questions: infant gender, birth order, the primary language spoken at home, the mother's country of birth, highest level of education, and marital status.
