Engagement is a fairly new concept in practice and research and is gaining the interest of federal and private regulators, clinicians, and researchers. In this article, we offer a standard definition and outline an engagement model and an instrument for early prediction and identification of low engagement in at-risk parents of late preterm infants. The Parent Risk Evaluation and Engagement Model and Instrument (PREEMI), its theoretical underpinnings, instrument design, and practical application and future research are discussed.
