A Pilot Study Analyzing Client Education Provided to Pregnant Clients Regarding Exercise throughout Pregnancy
Abstract:
A Pilot Study Analyzing Client Education Provided to Pregnant Clients Regarding Exercise throughout Pregnancy
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Dunn, Melissa
P.I. Institution Name:Baptist Hospital of Cocke County
The purpose of this study was to examine the types of educational material health care providers give pregnant clients about exercise during pregnancy. Additionally, this study investigated the importance that different health care professionals place on exercise during pregnancy. Betty Neuman’s systems model served as the theoretical framework for this study. To effectively fulfill the purpose of this study, a questionnaire was developed. The questionnaire polled health care professionals with and without nursing backgrounds regarding their opinions about exercise during pregnancy. Through a comparative analysis the questionnaire illustrated that a slightly larger percentage of health care professionals with a nursing background (88%) versus health care professionals without a nursing background (83%) provided information about exercise during pregnancy routinely. Furthermore, the results showed that 70% of health care professionals with a nursing background provided information about exercise during pregnancy in verbal form. However, only 33% of health care professionals without a nursing background provided information about exercise during pregnancy in verbal form. The conclusion can be drawn from this study that health care professionals with a nursing background provide information about exercise during pregnancy more often and more personally.
