ABSTRACT
The specific aim of this study is to identify factors related to parental satisfaction with a child health provider's services among a sample of Head Start parents. This is a retrospective study with a sample of 250 consented parents/guardians of registered Head Start children (3-5 years old), in South Los Angeles, California, USA. The study results showed that parents who were empowered or having a voice to demonstrate concerns about their child's health to the provider, negotiate a health care management plan , and ask questions, were nearly six times more likely to have reported receiving caring services from their child's providers (OR =5.78; CI= 2.882-11.8, P ≤ .05). Also, parents who reported trusting their child's provider were eight times more likely to report receiving caring services from their child's providers (OR = 8.63; CI=9.30-18.1, P ≤ .05). These results have implications for health provider training in patient-centered care and for patient empowerment during a medical encounter.
