The purpose of this study was to identify nursing care of children undergoing hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT), especially preparation for children's coping behaviors of oral medication. This study consisted two approaches.
1. A nursing study of oral medication for children undergoing HCT.
A questionnaire consisting of 4 open- ended and 6 closed-ended questions was used. This questionnaire was sent to 126 nurses, who are taking care of children undergoing HCT. 79 nurses answered the questionnaire.
Most of the nurses agreed with the policies of their wards about children's oral medication. Some nurses experienced emotional conflict when they faced the children's pain and difficulties. A few nurses wanted to stop oral medication based on their assessment of the children's conditions and reactions.
The nurses were very eager to cope with the children's difficulties of dosing. It can be said that they will play important roles to develop more effective coping strategies. More nurses are considering, more seriously, their role as "patient advocate" for these children.
2. Nurses' and mothers' perception of oral medication of children undergoing chemotherapy.
We observed two scenes of oral medication for each of 4 children kept in a children's hospital accompanied by their mothers. Four mothers and 11 nurses involved in the medication scenes observed were asked to answer open-ended questions about their perceptions.
As for preparation for children's coping behaviors of oral medication, it is important that nurses and mothers understand the feelings and thoughts of the children through careful observation of children's response.
