It helps to improve the digestive, absorptive, immunologic and nutrition status. However, poor handling in enteral feeding can lead to bacterial contaminations and severe consequences resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. At present, there are no definite guidelines on the handling of enteral feeding in local setting, therefore developing evidence based guideline on enteral feeding is critically important to eliminate inconsistent practices and prevent nosocomial infections related to enteral feeding. This dissertation is a translational nursing research that aims at developing evidence based guideline on enteral feeding in infants. The objectives of this thesis are to search for existing literatures on enteral feeding; perform a critical appraisal on the literatures; develop guideline on enteral feeding in infants; assess the implementation potential of the proposed guidelines, and develop the implementation and evaluation plans. The ultimate goal is to reduce the nosocomial infections in infants with enteral feeding in an acute hospital. A systemic search for relevant and valid evidence was performed using three electronic databases and nine relevant studies were retrieved. Critical appraisals on the nine studies were performed and the level of evidence for each study was graded according to the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN). By synthesizing the data from nine studies, it is concluded that optimal hang time and proper hand hygiene appeared to have significant effect in reducing nosocomial infections related to enteral feeding. The implementation potential of the innovation was assessed in terms of the transferability, feasibility and cost benefit ratio. After assessing the implementation potential, it is found that the evidence is transferable and feasible to implement the proposed guideline in the target paeditaric setting. An evidence based guideline on enteral feeding in infants was developed. An implementation plan of the new guideline included a comprehensive communication plan with both administration and nurses and a pilot test were developed to ensure a smooth implementation and optimize the transferability and effectiveness of the evidence based guideline in the target population. A systematic evaluation plan on patient outcomes, health care provider outcomes and systemic outcomes was developed. The evidence based guideline on enteral feeding was expected to be implemented in the long run to reduce the risk of nosocomial infections in infants with enteral feeding.
