BACKGROUND: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is one of the most suitable methods for long-term nutritional support. In this study, the empowerment of intensive care nurses is examined by a simulation technique to control the short-term complications of PEG. METHODS: A two-group clinical trial study will be conducted on eighty intensive care nurses in a teaching hospital in Tehran. The study participants will be randomly assigned to one of the two control and intervention groups based on the inclusion criteria. A pretest will be given to both groups using a researcher-made tool. Then, the empowerment package developed by the researcher will be provided to the intervention group in two stages. Next, a posttest will be administered. After this stage, patients' complications with PEG will be observed using a researcher-made checklist. Nurses' performances in both control and intervention groups will be evaluated in terms of preventing and controlling short-term complications up to 1 week after PEG insertion. All of the data collected in this research will be analyzed with statistic tests such as independent t-test, standard deviation, T pair, ANOVA, and mean based on the SPSS 16 software. RESULTS: At present, the research team is designing an empowerment package for nurses and tools needed to evaluate the nurses' empowerment. CONCLUSION: This study will attempt to design and evaluate the empowerment package of graduate nurses with a cognitive empowerment approach and using a simulation technique to care for patients with PEG and to control their short-term complications.
