The purpose of this project was to create a curriculum for training technicians to work in an infant feeding room. The goals of this program were to provide infant feeding room technicians with the necessary skills and knowledge to safely and accurately prepare nutritionally sound formulas or modified breastmilk for patients in the hospital setting to allow for better patient outcomes and increased confidence of technicians in their ability to perform their jobs, resulting in higher job satisfaction.
The program consists of four lessons: nutrition principles, math skills, sanitation procedures and customer service skills. The program was developed after a review of literature revealed preterm and critically ill infants are a high risk population, there are many potentials for error in feeding preparation and a lack of training for infant feeding room technicians. An expert panel reviewed all content and provided feedback and guidance.
