At present, the clinical treatment of biliary atresia (BA) does not pay enough attention to the psychological state of family members.
This study ensures the psychological status of family members of children with BA during treatment.
This study aimed to explore the application value of narrative nursing in children with BA.
Sixty-four family members of children with BA were included. The scores of mood state (depression and anxiety), family members’ nursing ability, perceived stress, and nursing job satisfaction of the children’s families were calculated before and after the intervention.
After the intervention, the child post-traumatic stress disorder symptom scores of the two groups were significantly lower than before the intervention, and the study group was lower than the control group; the nursing job satisfaction of family members in the study group was also significantly higher than that of the control group.
Narrative nursing for the families of children with BA can effectively alleviate their negative emotions, reduce perceived pressure, improve nursing ability, and make family members more satisfied with nursing work.
Narrative nursing will be more widely used in the treatment of children with BA.
