Abstract

Introduction: Marital adjustment, family characteristics, and parent child stress and compliance with treatment were investigated in 41 families with a preadolescent child (age 3 to 11 years) who had cystic fibrosis (CF). Method: Mothers completed the Dyadic Adjustment Scale, the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evalution Scale, and the short form of the Parenting Stress Index. Parents and medical staff completed questionnaires assessing the child's compliance with diet/untritional intake, vitamins, pancreatic enzymes, other medications (such as oral antibiotics), and chest physiotherapy. Results: Preadolescents with CF Were viewed as generally cooperative with most aspects of treatment. Parental ratings of compliance with dietary and nutritional intake were associated with increased marital consensus and decreased parenting stress. Medical staff ratings of dietary compliance, medication compliance, and chest physiotherapy compliance were associated with lower parenting stress. Discussion: Parent-child stress and lack of agreement between parents is associated with problems in compliance with treatment, which may have an adverse impact on the disease and health status of the child with CF.
