An assessment of kangaroo mother care among staff in a specialized neonatal intensive care unit, Asmara, Eritrea

Araya, Elsa Semere 05 February 2019 (has links)
Introduction: Preterm delivery remains the major cause of newborn infants’ morbidity and mortality globally and more so in low-income countries like Eritrea. Research has shown that the provision of Kangaroo mother care (KMC) can contribute to a reduction in morbidity and mortality among newborn infants. However, there is limited research on the practice of KMC in Eritrea. Methods: A mixed methods approach was adopted in a phenomenographic study to collect the data. Eleven participants with work experience of at least two years were recruited from the Specialised Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (SNICU) at Orotta Paediatric Hospital (OPH), Asmara, Eritrea. Data were collected via individual interviews and observations. Results: The results showed that participants had no prior KMC training and education. In addition, staff had limited knowledge and mixed attitudes about KMC practice. There were also no KMC guidelines and protocols. Furthermore, space was not adequate for full KMC practice except for implementation of the kangaroo position. The researcher’s observation confirmed similar evidence of a lack of availability of a KMC ward and lack of protocols and guidelines. Limited interaction and communication about KMC between participants and parents was also observed. Some of the most common hindrances to KMC practice were the perception that KMC increased staff work load and that it was time consuming. In addition, lack of regular KMC training for staff, lack of a convenient setup and too few staff members were among the hindrances. One staff members also perceived that KMC practice was not culturally accepted. 15 Conclusion: The results of this study showed that there were no proper KMC guidelines and protocols in the ward. In addition, only the kangaroo position was practiced, not the full KMC protocol. Furthermore, staff had limited knowledge and mixed attitudes. The observation component of the research highlighted the lack of space and KMC protocols and guidelines as key limitations for delivering KMC. Therefore, it is recommended that a programme to improve staff knowledge be implemented, that evidence-based KMC guidelines and polices be made available, that the KMC ward be expanded, and that health education about KMC practice be brought to the population through mass media

A Holistic Model Of The Interplay Of Parent-adolescent Interaction Varialbes: Outcomes As A Result Of Conflictual Processes

McKinney, Cliff Blake 01 January 2004 (has links)
Many variables have been analyzed in order to understand parent-adolescent interactions and outcomes for adolescents. These variables must be integrated into a model that demonstrates the holistic interplay of parent-adolescent interaction variables so that a more comprehensive understanding of parent-adolescent interactions is achieved. Variables included in the model proposed here were parenting, family environment, expectations, conflict, and outcomes. Parenting, family environment, and conflict were associated with outcomes for adolescents. When the variables were analyzed simultaneously with structural equation modeling, however, the relationship of parenting and adolescent outcomes was mediated wholly for male-father, male-mother, and female-father relationships but remained significant for female-mother relationships. Overall, the holistic interplay of parent-adolescent interaction variables and the need to examine parent-adolescent dyads individually were demonstrated.

Die ontwikkeling van riglyne vir die bemagtiging van ouers vir 'n beter verhouding met hulle adolessente kinders / Petronella Annabie (Petro) Fourie

Fourie, Petronella Annabie January 2007 (has links)
This article focuses on the development of guidelines to empower parents with adolescent children to have a better relationship with their adolescent children. A qualitative research method within the context of intervention research was followed to develop the guidelines. Three major themes and some sub-themes were identified from two focus groups with the parents and two focus groups with the adolescents. The main themes are parent-adolescent relationships, conflict and communication. Sub-themes include characteristics of a good relationship, time spend together, times of crisis, reasons for conflict, resolving conflict, effectiveness of conflict, aspects of good communication, coping with sensitive issues and dealing with unacceptable friendships. Empowerment involves the process of increasing personal, interpersonal, or political power so that individuals, families and communities can take action to improve their situations. The Strengths perspective subscribes to the notion that people have a reserve of abilities that can be expressed. When this reserve of inner power is enhanced, individuals, families or communities develop their potential, mastery and self-actualization. To empower the parents with adolescent children it is necessary for a practitioner helping the family to understand how to focus on the present and to incorporate a vision of the future in the guideline developed for parents with adolescent children. The integration of empowerment mandates parents with adolescent children, to move towards emphasizing strengths and to create solutions that incorporate elements of social action to improve their situations. / Thesis (M.A. (MW))--North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2007.
