Abstract

Background: Empirical studies in competence are lacking in the field of Drug dose calculation.

forthcoming nursing students.
Methods: Two rounds of the Delphi method were used. Data were analyzed by content analysis and with
descriptive statistics.
Results: After two sequential sessions of discussion by the Delphi method, a clinical guideline for Drug dose

was achieved by Median and Consensus percentage.
Conclusions:We constructed a clinical guideline for palliative sedation therapy using the Delphi technique. The
clinical efficacy of this guideline should be tested in the future.
