Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To assess the Behavioural distress of children undergoing Invasive Procedures, compare the effectiveness of therapeutic play on Behavioural distress of children in experimental and control group. Compare the effectiveness of therapeutic play in Physiological parameters of children in experimental and control group, associate the Behavioural distress with selected background variables of children undergoing invasive procedures in experimental group, associate the Behavioural distress with selected background variables of children undergoing invasive procedures in control group. DESIGN: matched control post test only design. Conceptual Frame Work used for the study was based on modified Katherine Kolcaba’s comfort model (2001). SETTING: The study was Paediatric wards of Kovai Medical Center and Hospital, Coimbatore. Sample enrolled in the study was60 children, 30 children in experimental and control group. For Data Collection A formal permission was obtained from Chairman and hospital authority. The respondents were selected on non purposive sampling technique. After maintaining a good rapport with the parent and children, the required data were collected after implementing the intervention. RESULT: shows that the mean OSBD score of the experimental group was 13.10 and for the control group was 20.20. the ‘t’ test score was 7.12, which was significant at p<0.001 level. It means that there was a significant effect of therapeutic play in reducing the level of behavioural distress in children undergoing invasive medical procedure but physiological variations were not noticed between the groups. CONCLUSION: The level of behavioural distress during procedure decreased after intervention with therapeutic play ‘t’ value 7.12 which was significant at p < 0.001. It shows that intervention was effective in reducing behavioural distress among children in experimental group than the control group. Younger children experienced more behavioural distress than the older children.
