The importance of attachment to child development and

parent-child relationships has been demonstrated in the

literature. Yet, nursing interventions that promote attachment

are not clearly specified and can only be inferred from the

literature. The purpose of this research, part of a larger

project to develop a taxonomy of nursing interventions, was to

validate six nursing interventions to promote attachment. A

randomly selected sample of certified neonatal nurse

practitioners rated the importance of defining activities for

each intervention in a two round Delphi survey. Intervention

Content Validation Scores were calculated using an adaptation of

Fehring's method of determining content validity of nursing

diagnoses. Through the use of weighted ratios, activities were

rated as critical (major), supporting (minor), or nonsupporting

(eliminated from the study). The product of this study is six

validated nursing interventions with definitions and numeric

ratings for 238 activities that nurses use to promotion

attachment. Only when nursing has a standardized language for

nursing interventions and the ability to specify the activities

each intervention entails will nurses be able to document and

study the effects of nursing interventions designed to promote

attachment.
