Abstract
Objectives
The purpose of this study was to determine if the provision of supportive care, via the telephone following hospital discharge could reduce the anxiety of mothers of premature infants, and enhance the confidence of mothering role of premature infants.
Methods
This study employed a quasi-experimental non-equivalent pre-test and post-test to compare two groups. The subjects are 32 mothers of premature infants (17 experimental group, 15 control group) who were discharged from Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in a general hospital from April 20 to August 20, 2004. The experimental group distributed pamphlets on the day when they discharged from the hospital and provided supportive care using the telephone of 15~20 minutes 4 times during the period of two weeks after discharge. The control group has received usual routine nursing care provided to mothers of premature infants. Hypotheses were tested by frequency, χ2-test, Fisher exact test, Mann-Whitney U test, and Wilcoxon signed rank test.
Results
The first hypothesis that the mothers who received supportive care would have less anxiety than the mothers who didn't receive supportive care was supported. The second hypothesis that the mothers who received supportive care would have higher maternal role confidence than the mothers who didn't receive supportive care was supported.
Conclusion
The supportive care using telephone may be applied on a method of nursing intervention contributing to decreasing anxiety level and increasing the confidence level in mothering role of premature infants.
