21st INRC [Research Presentation] Current feeding practices are inconsistent with identifying when premature infants are ready to nipple feed.ÿ In addition, verbal communication and documentation of how the premature infant nipple fed is rather subjective.ÿ Developing an assessment tool to determine the readiness for nipple feeding that is standardized may improve practices for nutrition in the premature newborn population.ÿ The investigators have developed a program of documentation based upon cue-based feeding.ÿ Purpose: To determine the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of registered nurses in regard to cue-based feeding practices with premature infants and nipple feeds. Design:ÿ A prospective, quasi-experimental design.ÿ Methods: A cue-based feeding survey will be conducted with a sub-set of forty nurses who work in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in central Florida.ÿ The survey will be administered twice.ÿ Once at baseline, before the educational training session entitled "Cue-based Feeding with Premature Infants" is released, and secondly in three months after the program's initiation.ÿ The nurses will then begin using the Cue-based Feeding Tool designed to assess and report readiness of the premature infant to nipple feed.ÿThe Cue-based Feeding Tool is a collection tool which allows seven highlighted areas to be historically and objectively graphed with each feed.ÿ At the end of the three month period, the nurses will complete an evaluation form to obtain feedback of the tool.ÿ Results: No findings are available at present. Conclusion: The survey results will be used to provide further educational direction regarding premature infant readiness to nipple feed and use of the Cue-based Feeding Tool.
