Purpose. To determine the effects of provision of information on mother’s problem focused coping ability during their child’s intravenous procedure. Methods. Data were collected from 56 mothers whose children have admitted to pediatric ward in the hospital. The participants included 27 intervention group mothers and 29 control group mothers. For the information intervention, “Programmed Information for Parental Coping before Intravenous Procedure (PIPC-IP)”, video program was made based on self-regulation theory for the experimental group mothers. Mother’s coping ability was measured by parental supportive behavior, parental beliefs and Profile of Mood State (POMS). Results. Mothers who received PIPC-IP showed significantly higher levels of supportive behavior (t = 3.55, p = .005) and Parental Beliefs (t = 2.95, p = .005), but no significant difference in negative mood on POMS (t = .15, p = .87) compared to mothers in the control group. Conclusions. These results demonstrate that PIPC-IP is an effective intervention to increase the supportive behaviors and beliefs of mothers’ problem focused coping ability but not the negative mood.
