When children leave the hospital, parents' resume their usual parenting and life responsibilities in addition to assuming new responsibilities related to the altered health state of the child. Discharge teaching often includes new knowledge and skills that nurses believe parents need to know, and fails to address the parent perspective. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe parent's perceptions of the experience of caring for their child post-hospitalization. Theoretical framework: Concepts framing the study included transition (Meleis, 2000) and coping and stress (McCubbin & McCubbin, 1981).
Methods and design: As part of a larger study, parents were interviewed before their child was discharged from the hospital and again 3 weeks later via the telephone. This study focused on the telephone interview. An 18-item structured interview guide was used, including 11 questions focused on coping difficulty. Five of the 11 questions allowed for open-ended responses while all 11 asked parents to rate on a 1-10 scale Sample: A convenience sample of English speaking parents, 18 years or older, with hospitalized children with anticipated discharge home, was recruited. Children discharged to hospice were excluded. 135 parents agreed to participate with 119 completing all aspects of the study.
Analysis: Data were analyzed and placed into major categories by one researcher, then independently read and coded by the second. Researchers reached consensus on final categories and overarching themes. Relevance to nursing practice: Results provide a direction for redesigning approaches to discharge teaching aimed at the reality of coping and helping parents imagine a new reality. Emerging themes included: uncertainty and worry, the child's care needs, and usual life coupled with the need for care coordination. An assessment incorporated into discharge teaching addressing these three areas of coping need is indicated.
