DIAZ AGUILAR, Rosa  and  ALONSO URIA, Rosa María. Preparation of the nursing personnel in the epicutaneous catheterism technique in Neonatology . Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2008, vol.24, n.2. ISSN 0864-0319.

Objetive: to identify the preparation in the application of the epicutaneous catheterism technique in the Neonatology graduate profile. METHODS: nursing Baccalaureates were surveyed at different special neonatal care services in Havana City. Results: it was found that this technique was not included either in the curriculum of the Nursing Baccalaureate or in teaching programs of the postbasic neonatology courses. Conclusions: the general results of the evaluation of the performance of the nursing professionals working in the neonatology service showed an insufficient control and preparation in connection with the epicutaneous catheterism technique, and the need to incorporate this procedure to the new pedagogical model of Nursing Baccalaureate and to postbasic courses to improve the attention given at these neonatal care units.

Keywords : Epicutaneous catheterism; abilities.
