Clinical Trial Summary

The effect of a multimedia admission orientation on the parental stress, uncertainty, and knowledge of primary caregivers of high-risk infants in a neonatal intensive care unit: a quasi-randomized controlled trial study.


Clinical Trial Description

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the place of caring for high-risk newborns whose primary caregivers would be very stressful due to unfamiliar medical equipment and environment. Furthermore, those primary caregivers of critically ill infants hospitalized in NICU may be even more distress as result of the constraint in visiting time and measures of insolation. Most studies have indicated that those primary caregivers of infants in NICU can experience a high level of parental stress particularly during the initial phase of admission. The literature has reported that during the admission the infant's conditions are prone to be unstable to an extent that can threaten his or her life which can result in the feeling of helplessness, uncertainty, low self-esteem and loss of control in those parents. The study aims to use a pre- and post-test quasi-randomized controlled trail to examine the effect of Multimedia Orientation Animation of NICU Admission for parents of critically ill infants. The video contain an introduction of common diseases seen in infants in NICU such as respiratory distress and the common medical equipment used and NICU environment. The major purpose of the educational video is to help the primary caregivers understand important information about the newborn's admission to the NICU. The data collection site of the study is one of the NICU from the north medical center in Taiwan. The subjects are grouped by time intervals, and divided into control and experimental groups, and that survey will be collected first with control group who will be provided with regular nursing care in term of admission orientation, and the experiment group is approached after the cessation of data collection from control group, which Multimedia Admission Orientation are offered to the experiment group. The measurements of the study include the caregivers' parental stress, the level of uncertainty and knowledge of admission after being treated by our intervention. The IRB of this study (IRB no.CGH-P110036) has been granted by Cathay General Hospital in Taipei, R.O.C. ;
