The study was parallel group (experimental-control), randomized controlled experimental design with pretest-posttest design. It was carried out in the neonatal intensive care unit of Selçuk University Faculty of Medicine Hospital in Konya province. Study data were collected from 32 newborn nurses between October 2022 and January 2023. Premature infants in the intervention (n = 16) and control groups (n = 16) were determined by randomization method.

Full description

Neonatal nurses in the intervention group were trained on the kangaroo care guide, but no application was made to the control group. Data were collected using the BP Information Form, BP Practice status, and the Attitudes Toward Evidence-Based Nursing Scale. Data were collected as a pretest before the application and as a posttest after the application. Pearson Chi-Square Test, Yates Correction and Fisher's Exact Test were used to compare categorical data according to groups. Two Independent Sample t Test was used to compare normally distributed variables and Mann Whitney U Test was used to compare non-normally distributed variables. Statistical significance level was accepted as p˂0.05.
