Abstract:
Session presented on: Tuesday, July 23, 2013: Purpose: The aim of this study was to validate the Inventory of Functional Status-Fathers (IFS-F) to the Portuguese version, showing its reliability and validity, adapted to first-time fathers in the postpartum period. Methods: The Inventory of Functional Status-Fathers (IFS-F) was developed by Tulman, Fawcett and Weiss (1993) to evaluate the functional status of fathers in postpartum. For the development of the Portuguese version of IFS-F, we followed two directives: (a) the linguistic and cultural adaptation to Portuguese language and (b) the psychometric study of this version, comparing it with the original. The IFS-F was applied, after the approval of the ethic committee, to a consecutive non probabilistic sample of 204 first-time fathers from a Health Centre (inclusion criteria: read and write, pregnancy, delivery and postpartum of the partner without complications, childbirth of a term new born), allowing with this sample the global psychometric study of the instrument. Results: The results of the psychometric study done with the Portuguese version tend to show that is an equivalent version to the original version. The test-retest confiable of the inventory has a high temporal stability. The internal consistency of remaining dimensionsare reasonable. Overall, apart from social and community activities dimension, where there is a marked difference compared to the value observed by Tulman, Fawcett and Weiss (1993), all other dimensions showed internal consistency similar to those found by the authors. Conclusion: Regarding the implications for care practice and research: it is thought that this instrument demonstrated the importance of evaluated the functional status of fathers during their transition to parenthood and as so it demonstrated its utility as a guidance to health professionals to evaluated and to promote a healthy involvement of fathers during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum of their partners, emphasizing the autonomy of fathers in the transition to parenthood.
