Why is it important?

The most obvious finding to emerge from this study is that both parents and nurses agreed on 7 out of 20 statements regarding parent involvement in children's care. Nurses in pediatric surgery had the most positive perceptions of involving parents, while nurses in the WBN ward had the most negative perceptions. The present findings confirm that married caregivers have more positive perceptions than their single counterparts


The possibility is that understanding parental participation in health care for children will establish a good working relationship with nurses and fill the gap between parents and nurses.
