Parental Attitude Change toward Hepatitus B Children through Focus Groups in Guangzhou in China
Alice C. LAI
An attempt was made to study the effects of focus group discussions on parental attitude change toward hepatitis B children in Guangzhou in China. The exploration and comparison of the general parental attitude toward HB children and healthy children were also made in this study. A sample of 65 parents of HB child carriers and healthy children was randomly selected and grouped into 7 focus groups containing message on "attitude toward your child and HB children" was administered through questions and discussions. Before and after design was used. Parents of HB child carriers showed more attitude change than parents of healthy children. Parents of healthy children made no change for rejecting the idea of integrating HB children into ordinary kindergarten after discussions.
