Abstract:   (4814 Views)
Objective(s): The present research was carried out in order to determine the effects of a designed care on the weight of infants suffering from Pneumonia in Tehran, Iran.
Methods: This was a quasi-expremental study. The sample, included 66 infants aged between 1 to 12 months who suffered from Pneumonia and their mothers selected randomly and were assigned to two groups: experimental and control. Data collection tools included questionnaire, observational - interviewing checklist and Burer MS50 scale. The disigned care was taught both theoretically and practically. The strengths and weaknesses of the function of mothers at home were recorded, while the control group had taken only ordinary care from their mothers. Every examining unit was followed up for 3 months after intervention. The data concerning infant’s weight were gathered in repeated measurements before and after intervention.
Results: There was a significant difference between experimental and control groups in infants weight after intervention (P<0.05).
Conclusion: The findings indicate that using a designed care has a desirable effect on the weight of infants suffering from pneumonia. Moreover the results indicate that home-training is a good strategy in improving the mothers' caring behaviours.
