Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical usefulness and efficiency of two postpartum assessment tools: an empirically based postpartum assessment tool and the theory-based Roy-postpartum adaptation assessment tool (R-PAAT). Thirty mother-infant pairs were sequentially assigned to the control or experimental group for a postpartum home visit. Secondary analysis of the data involved (1) identification of nursing diagnoses generated from each assessment tool's data, (2) comparison of the number of nursing diagnoses generated using the empiric postpartum assessment tool versus the R-PAAT, and (3) comparison of the efficiency, measured by time required for a home visit, using the respective tools. Two of the 18 possible postpartum nursing diagnoses were identified significantly (p < .05) more often using the R-PAAT and two additional diagnoses approached significance. Home visits using the R-PAAT required significantly longer time to complete.
