Project Details


The research aims to map how different neurodisability services have responded to the recommendations of evidence reviews on the need to provide families considering a gastrostomy feeding tube for their child with structured support within care pathways to improve the quality of decision making about children's need for a gastrostomy.

We aim to:

a) identify different service support models nationally;
b) compare the implementation and operation of contrasting models of support and resource differences; and,
c) provide an estimate of their costs, sources of funding and cost variations.
