Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To determine the effects of home visiting or home-based parent centered interventions, with or without an in-hospital component, on growth and development of preterm or low birth weight infants, and on psychosocial wellbeing of their parents.
