Abstract:
Purpose:

 It is believe among Chinese women that there are three chances in timing, menarche, post-partum, and menopause, to modulate their body constitution. To grab the second chance of modulation, Chinese women will take very seriously in post-partum care, especially in food and traditional Chinese medication such as Sheng-Hwa-Tang, for uterus reconstruction, blood cultivation, circulation activation, and extravagated blood cleaning. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between knowledge and efficacy of Sheng-Hwa-Tang and resource of prescription among post-partum women.

Methods:

 A cross-sectional study design with questionnaires, based on a large study, was used to collect what levels of understanding toward Sheng-Hwa-Tang post-partum women used and where Sheng-Hwa-Tang prescription they obtained. A total of 1219 participants from northern, midland, and southern Taiwan was recruited with inform consents approved by IRB of Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital.

Results:

 This study found that majority of participants used Sheng-Hwa-Tang (63.2%). The Sheng-Hwa-Tang knowledge of post-partum women showed insufficiency(5.4±2.4 compare with 14 of total score). Noteworthy that whether experience of using Sheng-Hwa-Tang or not, there were no significant difference of knowledge levels between primipara or multipara. Yet, the knowledge of Sheng-Hwa-Tang likelihood influence decision-making of whether use Sheng-Hwa-Tang or not(p<0.001, used 5.75±2.3 vs. not to use 4.52±2.2).

Conclusion:

The results of this study showed the insufficiency knowledge of Sheng-Hwa-Tang which is valued and frequent use in post-partum care in Chinese society. It is very urgent to educate in post-partum nursing care to avoid adverse effects and abuse episodes of Sheng-Hwa-Tang, such as bleeding and even life threatened.
