The benefits of mothers providing support for their children during painful medical procedures have been studied extensively. However, little is known about father's participation and effectiveness. The purpose of this poster is to compare parent characteristics and child and parent responses of fathers versus mothers providing distraction coaching for their child during an intravenous (IV) catheter placement. Child, parent and procedural variables influence child responses to painful medical procedures when a trained parent provides distraction. Interventions such as distraction may improve parent and child responses. This project is part of a multi-site research study to identify factors that predict which children benefit from distraction and which parents are able to effectively coach their child in the use of distraction during a painful medical procedure. A convenience sample included 540 children ages 4-10 having an IV placement for a medical procedure and one parent self-designated as the support person. Parent characteristics (state and trait anxiety, involvement, parenting style, expectation and experiences) and child and parent responses (child distress profile and parent distraction ability) are compared between fathers and mothers who provide distraction coaching. To date, 48/435 (11%) parents enrolled are fathers. Preliminary analyses indicate that fathers in this study do not differ significantly from mothers on parent characteristics such as race, education, state and trait anxiety, and parent involvement. Differences in parent coping style, nurturance, expectations, and experiences will be described. Child and parent responses will be compared between father and mothers using Chi-square test and Wilcoxon Rank-sum test. Differences between the parent characteristics and procedural outcomes of fathers vs. mothers providing support and distraction intervention to their child during a painful medical procedure may exist. Further research is needed to explore how interventions can be tailored to fathers participating in their child's care. [Poster Presentation]
