In video group, the video recording was shown to the relatives in addition to verbal training however only verbal training was given in the control group. The relatives' level of knowledge and practice score was evaluated. Results: Mean enteral feeding knowledge scores of patient relatives were found to be 76.7 [+ or -] 7.97 in the video group and 42.1 [+ or -] 12.57 in the control group. Mean enteral feeding practice scores were as follows: 19.64 [+ or -] 3.3 for the video group and 13 [+ or -] 3.63 for the control group. Conclusions: It was concluded that the enteral feeding training provided by using the video method increased the knowledge and practice levels of patient relatives.
