Background: Infants and children experiencing pain are among the most vulnerable in societies striving for socially just and humane care. Simultaneously, parents are striving to protect their children from these vulnerabilities. This is particularly important when the vulnerable are experiencing pain and need parents as advocates. Yet, there are gaps in knowledge regarding how parents specifically appraise child pain in these instances; a situation that potentially decreases the ability of parents to protect their children. Thus, collaborating with parents to understand how they appraise child pain is important for the practice of family-centered care that is just and socially responsible while supporting the protection role of parents. Purpose: The purposes of this study are to (a) understand parent appraisal processes when considering their child's or infant's pain behaviors in the health situation, and to (b) examine cultural influences upon this appraisal. Theoretical/conceptual framework: A combination of family-centered health care tenets and a symbolic interactionist perspective forms the conceptual framework for this study. Subjects: No more than 20 parents of children at two sites (two children's hospitals, one in the Midwestern United States and one in Italy) will be invited to participate. The settings for the study will be as follows in each site: cardiac surgical intensive care, neonatal intensive care unit and pediatric oncology. Method: A qualitative design with grounded theory method will guide data collection and analysis by the international research team. Similarities and differences will reveal the common and unique human experiences of parent appraisal of pain with particular attention paid to cultural influences. Results: The goal will be for the two research teams to create two separate models or one overall model with visual representation of parent appraisal of pain for future use in designing family-level interventions that attend to decreasing the vulnerabilities of children in pain.
