To validate an elaborate care protocol for clients after coronary transluminal angioplasty.


For the validation of the protocol, the Delphi technique was used, counting on a panel of nine judges, all nurses with expertise in the area of ​​cardiology. In addition to the qualitative evaluation, as recommended by the Delphi technique, we used quantitative measures such as the content validity index and the agreement rate.


According to the suggestions made by the experts in each round, the document was adjusted to reach the agreement rate and content validity index of at least 0,9, requiring three rounds of questionnaires.


The validated protocol is considered a tool to guide the practice of nurses working in this specific area.
