European neonatal intensive care nursing research priorities: An e-delphi study
MetadataShow full item record
Objective: This study aimed to identify and prioritise neonatal intensive care nursing research topics across Europe using an e-Delphi technique. Design: An e-Delphi technique with three questionnaire rounds was performed. Qualitative responses of round one were analysed by content analysis and research statements were generated to be ranged on importance on a scale of 1–6 (not important to most important). Setting: Neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in 17 European countries. Population: NICU clinical nurses, managers, educators and researchers (n=75). Intervention: None. Main outcome measures: A list of 43 research statements in eight domains. Results: The six highest ranking statements (≥5.0 mean score) were related to prevention and reduction of pain (mean 5.49; SD 1.07), medication errors (mean 5.20; SD 1.13), end-of-life care (mean 5.05; SD 1.18), needs of parents and family (mean 5.04; SD 1.23), implementing evidence into nursing practice (mean 5.02; SD 1.03), and pain assessment (mean 5.02; SD 1.11). The research domains were prioritised and ranked: (1) pain and stress; (2) family centred care; (3) clinical nursing care practices; (4) quality and safety; (5) ethics; (6) respiratory and ventilation; (7) infection and inflammation; and (8) professional issues in neonatal intensive care nursing. Conclusions: The results of this study might support developing a nursing research strategy for the nursing section of the European Society of Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care. In addition, this may promote more European researcher collaboratives for neonatal nursing research.
