Introduction: Nephrotic syndrome is a common renal disease in
pediatric clinics and its clinic manifestations usually threaten the ill
children's mothers. However, little was known about these mothers' stress
and its predictive related factors from the existing studies. This lack of
information for nurses limits appropriated care provided for these
nephrotic syndrome children, and their families. Purpose: To examine the
significant predictors of perceived stress among mothers who have 0-18
year-old nephrotic syndrome children. Design: A correlational, descriptive
study design was used, and Lazarus and Folkman's Stress model guided this
study. Method: Ninety-eight mothers participated in the study, by
convenient, purposive sampling from a Medical Center in Taiwan. Two
structured questionnaires were used to assess the perceived stress and
coping strategies via home interviews. Results: Four dimensions: 1) the
sick child, 2) the mother herself, 3) the medical care, and 4)
interactions with others, were the majority of stress sources among these
mothers. "The sick child" was the major resource of stress manifested the
highest level scores of perceived stress among mothers. Mothers who had
less support used less frequent problem-orientated and emotion-oriented
coping strategies. Those whose children were steroid dependent, having
protein urine showing within half year, or having hospitalization
experience, perceived higher stress. These factors together explained
45.1% of these mothers' stress. Uses of problem-orientated and
emotion-oriented coping strategies, time period from protein urine
showing, and steroid depended children were the significant predictors of
mothers' perceived stress. Implications for nursing: Results from this
study provides a better understanding about important factors associated
with these mothers' stress, aid in its early detection and effective
reduction. Providing educational programs and organizing a support group
may be useful for these nephritic syndrome children's mothers to coping
with their stress pertaining to the illness of their children.
