The present study aimed to determine the effect of training parents by film, poster or graphics, and verbal explanation, on the enhancement of their satisfaction with the performance of this procedure.

Materials and Methods

This cross-sectional quasi-experimental study was conducted on the children with febrile seizures referred to the Emergency and Pediatric Wards of hospitals affiliated with Mashhad University of Medical Sciences. They were LP candidates; nonetheless, their parents did not consent to the performance of this procedure. The children were randomly assigned to three groups. In the first group, videos of the location and method of LP were presented to the parents. The second group received this information via posters, and the parents in the third group were given a verbal explanation.


The children included 49 (4.54%) females with a mean age of 15 months. There was a significant relationship between the reason for parental refusal of LP and their final satisfaction (P=0.022). There was a significant relationship between parents' satisfaction with the performance of LP and their education (P=0.029). The film method had the lowest chance of success, and the verbal explanation method enjoyed the most remarkable success in enhancing parental satisfaction (P= 0.013).


Although the use of posters and videos was less effective than verbal explanation, it increased the satisfaction of LP in some parents. In fact, it is more beneficial to try to alter parental misperceptions of LP in non-emergency situations.
