The study will be conducted with spouses of patients hospitalized in the Adult Intensive Care Unit of a State Hospital between January and March 2024.
It was planned to use the criterion sampling method, one of the purposeful sampling methods, in determining the sample of the research. The psychoeducation program will be implemented in six sessions with individual interviews lasting approximately 45-60 minutes, three times a week for the spouses of patients in intensive care. The first session includes the meeting and introduction of the psychoeducation program. The second session includes the adaptation process to the intensive care unit. The third, fourth and fifth sessions include methods of coping with stress. The sixth session includes evaluation and termination of the psychoeducational program.
Quantitative data of the research will be collected with the pre-action and post-action Psychological Distress Scale and the Stress Coping Styles Scale. Qualitative data of the research will be collected through semi-structured individual in-depth interviews conducted after the action. Quantitative data will be analyzed with the SPSS 25.0 package program. Continuous variables will be given as mean ± standard deviation and categorical variables will be given as number and percentage. Since non-parametric test assumptions are met in comparing the differences between psychological distress and styles of coping with stress (n<30), it will be analyzed with the Wilcoxon test. P <0.05 will be considered statistically significant. Analysis of qualitative data will be done with content analysis in Nvivo 11 qualitative data analysis program.
