Abstract

A Quasi Experimental Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Clinical Pathway for Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia upon the Knowledge and Practice of Nurses and Neonatal Outcome at Apollo Main Hospital, Chennai. OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the pre and post test level of knowledge and practice of nurses regarding clinical pathway for neonates with hyperbilirubinemia. 2. To assess the neonatal outcome in control and experimental group of neonates with hyperbilirubinemia. 3. To evaluate the effectiveness of clinical pathway by comparing the pre and post test level of knowledge and practice of nurses regarding clinical pathway for neonates with hyperbilirubinemia. 4. To compare the neonatal outcome in control and experimental group of neonates with hyperbilirubinemia. 5. To compare the level of parental satisfaction on nursing care in control and experimental group of neonates with hyperbilirubinemia. 6. To determine the association between the selected demographic variables of nurses and their pre and post test level of knowledge regarding clinical pathway for neonates with hyperbilirubinemia. 7. To determine the association between selected demographic variables of control and experimental group of neonates with hyperbilirubinemia and their outcome. 8. To determine the association between selected clinical variables of control and experimental group of neonates with hyperbilirubinemia and their outcome. The conceptual framework for the study was developed on the basis of Kurt Lewin’s Model of Change (1947). In this study, Quasi-experimental research design was adopted. Since there were limited number of nurses available, one group pre and post test design was adopted for the nurses. The present study was conducted at Apollo Main Hospital, Chennai among nurses who take care of neonates with hyperbilirubinemia and neonates admitted with hyperbilirubinemia. The study sample size for the present study was 20 nurses and 60 neonates with hyperbilirubinemia who were selected by purposive sampling technique. An extensive review of literature and guidance by experts laid the foundation to the development of the tools for the study. The investigator used the demographic variables of nurses, neonatal variable proforma, clinical variable proforma and demographic variable proforma for mothers to obtain the baseline data. Structured questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge of nurses, practice checklist to identify whether the neonates were receiving the appropriate care, rating scale to assess the level of parental satisfaction and checklist to assess the neonatal outcome. The data collection tools were validated and reliability was established. After the pilot study, the data for the main study was collected. Major Findings of the Study were
