DUPRAT CENICCOLA, Guilherme; COELHO ARAUJO, Wilma Maria  y  AKUTSU, Rita. Development of a tool for quality control audits in hospital enteral nutrition. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2014, vol.29, n.1, pp.102-120. ISSN 1699-5198.  http://dx.doi.org/10.3305/nh.2014.29.1.7071.

Background and aims: Malnutrition is very prevalent in hospitals, causing physical capacity deterioration, increasing complications and raising mortality. This scenario overloads public health costs enormously. Enteral nutrition (EN) is the first option to fight against malnutrition. Nutrition support teams (NST) work combating such conditions, promoting humanization, but also analyzing the cost benefit of EN therapy. Brazil is one of the first Latin American countries to develop EN laws. Quality control it is in the core of this legal instrument, playing an essential role in NSTvs task of providing care. Nowadays, tools to access quality control represent a gap in the area. The aim of this study was to develop a quality control tool, according to Brazilian law for EN Therapy regarding multidisciplinary approach, good practices, standard operating procedures, protocol implementation, proper registration and electronic health record. Methods: A content validation method was utilized in this four stages development process: bibliographic research, expert opinion (subjective), semantic evaluation and expert opinion (objective). In the latter stage ten specialists, expressed their opinion, evaluating the tools by four different attributes: utility, simplicity, objective and low cost on a 5-point Likert scale (1-5). Results: We elaborate three independent tools that together, represent the whole evaluation process, named: NST Activities, EN Preparation and EN Administration. Content Validation Index to the four different attributes ranged form 0,9 to 1. Conclusion: This tool had positive approval from experts and is of great value guiding hospital audits, or even serving as checklist to implement a plan on EN therapy.
