Who looks after neonates with intestinal failure in the UK? A survey of practice
Rebekka Jones, Pamela Cairns
Intestinal failure (IF) is a grave condition that carries extensive morbidity and mortality. A multidisciplinary team approach has been shown to be associated with improved survival; however no clear framework for the management of neonates with IF exists in the UK. In order to determine the clinical care arrangements for infants with IF, a questionnaire related to place of care, multi-professional and paediatric gastroenterology involvement was distributed to clinicians at surgical care units within the UK using an online survey tool.
