Abstract:
The overall objective of this study is to identify the impact of a child's transplant on the family. More specifically, this study addresses the following question: What are the patterns of change in stress, coping, resources, severity of the stressor and family adaptation from the pretransplantation period to the post transplantation period in a longitudinal cohort? The Double ABC-X Model of Family Adaptation provides the conceptual framework for this longitudinal study. Stress, coping, resources, severity of the stressor and family adaptation are being measured. Data collection is underway and will be completed in 1998 using the following instruments: McMaster Family Assessment Device, Family Inventory of Life Events, Coping Health Inventory for Parents, Family Coherence Index, and the Norbeck Social Support Inventory. Data are being collected pretransplantation and at least four years post transplantation. Subjects were 31 parents whose child was awaiting a liver transplant. Twenty-three of the original group are in the longitudinal cohort. The remaining eight were either transplanted elsewhere, are inactive or have not survived. Data will be analyzed using descriptive statistics, repeated measures ANOVA and correlational methods. Internal consistency reliability will be computed for all scales for which it is appropriate. Preliminary analysis of the pretransplantation data reveals significant correlations between family adaptation and the variables of stress (.58), coping (-.62). The knowledge from this study will lead to the development and testing of nursing interventions to meet the identified needs.
