Abstract
Purpose: We examined the effects of a humor intervention on the physiological, physical, and psychological responses of school-aged children with atopic dermatitis. Design and Methods: This quasi-experimental study used a nonequivalent control group and a pre- and post-test design. Forty-five schoolchildren participated. Results: Children in the experimental group (n = 26) received a humor intervention and reported significant differences in physiological response, which was evidenced by heightened salivary immunoglobulin A levels as compared to the control group (n = 19). Additionally, the psychological response of the experimental group was significantly different from that of the control group as evidenced by decreased stress levels. Conclusion: Humor intervention may be an effective nursing intervention for children with atopic dermatitis. (C) 2018 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
