Clinical Trial Summary

The safety of the patient using a nasoenteral tube depends on the constant evaluation of the nursing team. The most implemented strategies for safe practice are education interventions, however, seem insufficient to change behavior. Active methodologies may be more promising alternatives for the development of these competencies. The objective is evaluate the effect of an isolated education intervention and combined with a visual identity campaign on the safe practice in the use of nursing care to the patient in use nasoenteral tubes. The clinical trial will be carried out in 2017, in a university hospital. Two profiles of participants will be included in the study: the first one refers to the nursing technicians of the hospital areas, part of them will receive a set of interventions, and the second one refers to the patients in use nasoenteral tube, considering that the effect of intervention will be measured by assessing compliance with care routines.


Clinical Trial Description

The safety of the patient undergoing enteral nutritional therapy depends on the constant evaluation of the nursing team, which, through specific skills, allows the establishment of nutritional care and prevents incidents related to the diet administration process. The challenge is to adopt safe practices that contemplate all these specificities, knowing that only knowledge is insufficient for the development of these competences, but also depends on the ability and commitment of these professionals.

Training and capacity are predominant strategies in the health area to increase patient safety in the execution of nursing staff's care activities, however, this type of approach, when applied in isolation, is sometimes insufficient to change behavior end development of skills and attitudes among these professionals. Combined strategies such as alerts and reminders systems, educational visits, auditing systems, clinical simulations, feedbacks and workshops, on clinical practice safety are being deployed and evaluated as a more effective way of changing behavior.

In this sense, the research question of the present project is: The implementation of a strategy of safety in service through an educational intervention associated to the visual identity campaign is able to increase the adhesion of the nursing technicians to the fulfillment of routines in the use of nasoenteral tube? The objective is evaluate the effect of an isolated education intervention and combined with a visual identity campaign on the safe practice in the use of nursing care to the patient in use nasoenteral tubes. The clinical trial will be carried out in 2017, in a university hospital. Two profiles of participants will be included in the study: the first one refers to the nursing technicians of the hospital areas, part of them will receive a set of interventions, and the second one refers to the patients in use nasoenteral tube, considering that the effect of intervention will be measured by assessing compliance with care routines.

The study will be conducted according to the following steps, respectively: (1) Evaluation of the agreement between observers, (2) Pre-intervention evaluation (baseline), (3) Intervention (Educational Intervention and Visual Identity Campaign) and (4) Post-intervention evaluation. Both groups (IG and CG) will be submitted to the same research procedures in the evaluation stages (pre- and post-intervention); However, only the nursing technicians of the GI will be submitted to an intervention stage. ;
