The Family Health Project Astronaut Training Program
Conference Sponsor:Western Institute of Nursing
Conference Year:2004

Purpose: To describe the methodological issues and challenges associated with data collection for biobehavioral measures of family teaching and problem-solving interactions and children’s responses to baseline and stress tests. Rationale and Methods: The families in this study are participating in a maximum of 5 different methodological components, one of which takes place during a visit by the target child and parents to the Family Health Project Laboratory. The visit invites them to participate in our “astronaut training program.” Families arrive at the laboratory and are greeted by the child’s flight instructor and mission control specialist. They are escorted to the UW Space Shuttle Learning Laboratory, a biobehavioral laboratory that serves as a flight deck of a space shuttle and built by the Boeing Company and the Talaris Research Institute. As part of the astronaut training, the family interacts with mission control to complete a series of tasks that permits us to record family interactions and physiological responses during baseline, problem solving, stressor challenged, and teaching tasks. Results: This laboratory session allows us to collect biobehavioral data from the child and parents. The data collection from the child is in a format that is entertaining for the child to stay interested yet feasible for the child to keep fairly immobile in order to collect cleaner, noise free physiological data. Implications: We will discuss the parameters of our decision process for how to design a 3-hour laboratory session for children and their parents that would be fun for the child but also permit us to collect impedance cardiography and electrocardiogram data for the required biobehavioral components of the project. We will share information about raising funds from private organizations to supplement research projects. We will describe the procedures, methods, and materials we use in our study to assist other family nurse researchers in developing similar laboratory protocols.
