Calling Enteral Patients
An undergraduate student wants to find out about the esxperiences of administrating medication through Enteral Feeding tubes, from the perspective of the patient and the carer.
We would appreciate the assistance of anyone who is receiving Home Enteral Nutrition or their carers in spending 5 minutes completing an on-line survey regarding thrie experience of administering medication via their feeding tube.
This survey is part of a research project being undertaken by a pharmacy study at De Montfort University looking at the adminitsration of medication via enteral feeding tubes, with particular focus on the actual patient and carer experience of administering medication in this way and any problems they may have experienced.
The survey can be found at the following link:
It will remain open until the 20th February, as the student has deadline for the data analysis and submission of their final report.
If you have experience of administrating medication via enteral tubes then this is your chance to speak up about what you think of the process and to highlight the areas that are problematic.
