Objectives: To improve the quality of intravenous therapy (IT) in the pediatric population by monitoring indicators and training interventions aimed at nursing professionals. Decrease the variability of health care in the care offered by the different professional disciplines and know the degree of compliance in the different hospitals and pediatric services (oncology Ward too) participating in the Valencian Community, by nursing professionals, of the protocol designed by the group manager INCATIV PEDIÁTRICO on the care in the pediatric population carrier of IT therapy between.
Methodology: Quasi-experimental study with periodic cross-sections (pre-intervention and post-intervention training) by nursing care professionals related to intravenous therapy in the pediatric population, obtaining the “INCATIV index” as other quality indicators in this admitted population. It will be carried out with the participation of the Pediatrics Services of 7 voluntary, public and private management hospitals, with the assistance units that the different centers estimate to be included in the project. The subjects of the study were the pediatric population between 0 and 16 years of age admitted to the pediatric services of said participating hospitals during the data collection periods. A consensual data collection notebook will be used between the research team formed homogeneously by nursing professionals from each hospital. The study will be carried out in two phases: pilot study in two voluntary hospitals and the next phase of adhesion of the rest of the hospitals participating in the research project.
Conclusion: Multicenter studies are needed to find out the main risk factors associated with intravenous therapy in pediatric units. One of the main objectives is to recognize the current status of IT in pediatric oncology units.
