Background & Aim: Patients of special care units for children and infants are separated from their families with restrictive policies. The present study was conducted with the aim of Design and psychometric Questionnaire of obstacles in implementation of family-centered care in Pediatric and Neonate intensive care units from the Parents' perspective.
Materials & Methods: After the field study, the face validity of the 36-item questionnaire was conducted using both quantitative and qualitative methods. Quantitative face validity of the questionnaire was done by 10 parents, qualitative face validity by 5 pediatric faculty members, and content validity by 10 nursing faculty members. Two-stage reliability was performed two weeks apart by 20 parents of patients hospitalized in special departments for children and infants. Cronbach's alpha coefficient was used for internal consistency. The factor analysis of the questionnaire was done by 150 parents with children and infants hospitalized in special care units.
Results: 14 questions were removed and the CVI and CVR of the 22-question questionnaire were calculated as 0.95 and 0.93, respectively. Cronbach's alpha of the questionnaire was 0.91 and intra-cluster correlation was 0.93. Factor analysis with principal component analysis extracted four factors of being cumbersome to parents' presence, inappropriate organizational structure, nurses' fear of insufficient knowledge of parents and fear of harming the patient with an explanatory rate of 61.65% of the total variance.
Conclusion: The 4-dimensional questionnaire of barriers to the implementation of family-centered care from the perspective of parents is a reliable and valid tool to investigate the barriers to the implementation of family-centered care in special care departments for children and infants.
