Abstract


This quasi-experimental research aimed to examine the effect of information and husband support program on uncertainty in mothers with preterm infants. Participants included 30 mothers with preterm infants receiving medical treatment at NICU, Queen Savang Vadhana Memorial Hospital, Chonburi province. Fifteen participants were in the control group receiving the usual nursing care. Fifteen mothers were in the experimental group receiving the information and husband support program. Data were collected since November 2017 to January 2018. The research instruments consisted of the information and husband support program, the demographic data record form, and Parental Perception of Uncertainty scale. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and t-test.


            The result revealed that after the experiment, the mean scores of uncertainty in the experimental group was significantly lower than before receiving the program and lower than those in the control group (p< .001). Therefore, nurse and healthcare team could apply the information and husband support program to reduce uncertainty among mothers with preterm infants and resulted in providing the good care for their infants.
