Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Purpose: To describe the process for using the Delphi Technique to gain consensus in approaches to respiratory management of infants cared for in a Neonatal ICU (NICU). This technique is an organized approach to obtain group input for ideas and problem solving when individuals or groups maintain diverse opinions on a topic. It uses a series of carefully designed questionnaires interspersed with information summaries and feedback from preceding responses. Importance: With the rapidly changing technology and research in the field of neonatology it is a challenge to provide evidence based practice in an NICU. Care prescribers and providers, including physicians, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, and nurses, utilize their past education and prior experience to guide their practice. When each practitioner has a different approach, it can lead to inconsistencies in the plan of care. By utilizing research outcomes based on current evidence to develop potentially better practices, care providers can potentially agree on a consistent, unified approach to care. Approach: Utilizing the Delphi technique, a questionnaire devised by the NICU Respiratory Care committee was distributed to nurses, neonatologists, NNPs, and respiratory therapists working in the NICU. Questions asked for agreement and disagreement using a Likert scale with statements posed relating to all aspects of neonatal respiratory neonatal care including ventilator management, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), nasal cannula oxygen administration, and oxygen saturation targeting. Participants answered questionnaires independently and returned them for analysis. Committee members thoroughly reviewed the literature related to these topics for subsequent feedback to the respondents. A respiratory care retreat was subsequently held and attended by all interested NICU staff. Committee leaders presented an overview of the evidence found in current literature on neonatal...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.] REFERENCES: Hsu C and Sanford B. 2007.
