Abstract:
Purpose: There is a growing use of Email based provision of information, development of health related skills, and interventions, however, use of email intervention to assist women and children experiencing abuse after receiving Protection from Abuse (PFA) court order has not been explored. The specific aims of this research were to test the feasibility of an email device called MailStation for use in interacting with women and children after receiving PFA. Methods: This descriptive design used a three-step recruitment, screening, and email intervention after obtaining informed consent and training in the use of an email device. Sample included six (6) pairs of mother and child (N=12) who have received a PFA within the past 6 months. Demographic and health data were gathered using the demographic data and health screening questionnaires. Self-Efficacy level was measured using self-efficacy scale for women and children experiencing abuse. Qualitative data were gathered using email messages from mother and child pairs. Results: Results showed email interaction is a feasible and acceptable way of providing support and information to survivors of abuse after their PFA. Results also showed improvement in the self efficacy scores of the mothers post email interaction. The following themes in their order and rank of appearance were found in the email interaction between the nurse and survivors: 1) safety issues, 2) job-related issues, 3) school-related issues, 4) parenting-related issues, and 5) health-related issues. Conclusions and Implications: Privacy, confidentiality and respect for individual rights are paramount in email interactions. Email interaction is useful in education, screening, safety instructions and follow-up care. Blackberry which is portable and cordless was seen by our sample as a feasible replacement of the MailStation. Health care providers need to identify technological developments and through evidence-based research examine their feasibility and adaptability for use in caring for health care consumers.
