Abstract

Objectives: Mothers' perception of their ability to parenting (maternal parenting self-efficacy) is a critical issue that influences their interactions with their preterm neonates. For better support of these mothers, a robust tool is needed which can measure mothers' perception of their ability to understand and care for their preterm neonates as well as being sensitive to the various levels and tasks in parenting. This study aimed to translate and test the face validity of Persian version of Perceived Maternal Parenting Self- Efficacy (PMP S-E) tool with Iranian mothers of hospitalized preterm neonates. Method: The translation and validation was done in some steps. Forward translated by three independent translators and backward translated by two other translators who were blind to source version. Then, the face validity was evaluated by 10 mothers and the expert panel. At last, the tool adapted and approved by an expert committee. Result: The Persian version of PMP S-E tool demonstrated good face validity regarding its items' relevancy and clearance. Discussion: The PMP S-E was successfully translated and adapted into Persian with good face validity. However, further study is needed for evaluating its reliability in Iran and for Iranian mothers of hospitalized preterm neonates.
