to verify the positioning indications of newborn sand build a standard operating procedure protocol for newborn positioning in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
for protocol validation, the Delphi technique was used ,in which expert nurses in the field reviewed the proposed procedure.
we present the results of this validation in a protocol form, to contribute to the discussion about newborn positioning in NICU and standardization of nursing care related to positioning. We evaluated ten indicators, in which there was agreementof100.0% in seven, and of80% in three, above the 60% recommended by the validation technique.
