Abstract

To explore parents' experiences of their child suffering febrile seizures. Seven mothers and four fathers with experience of one or several febrile seizures in their children were interviewed. A qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach was performed. Five themes emerged; emotional experiences, in terms of anxiety and fear, and need for control, need for support, need for acknowledgement and need for comfort. Professional assurance and support from healthcare staff was considered important to help parents handle the situation. Febrile seizure caused anxiety due to parents' lack of comprehension about the event and how to act during the seizure. The pediatric nurse plays an important role in gaining the trust of and supporting parents whose children have suffered febrile seizures. They can alleviate concerns that arise, and also generate assured and well informed parents, who are better prepared to deal with recurrent febrile seizures.

This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 January 2018.
All research outputs
#8,481,346
of 9,722,262 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Pediatric Nursing
#474
of 528 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#213,728
of 255,697 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Pediatric Nursing
#19
of 24 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,722,262 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 528 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.5. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 255,697 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 24 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
