Next step - research topics for parenteral nutrition


Following the call for research topics we are pleased to share the next step...
There was an amazing response from the UK and the suggested research topics have been short-listed.

We now ask you to vote for your top 10 from the 41 questions listed. Once selected you will be asked to rank them in respect of importance to you.

If you are on parenteral nutrition and are 18 years and over then you, along with family members can cast your vote, please use this link: 

Please note: you can still vote even if you did not submit any topics in the first round of the project.

Background to the project:

“We are an international group of patients and healthcare professionals trying to find out what needs researching in the area of home parenteral nutrition in a project being co-ordinated by researchers at the University of Manchester. If you are a patient, family member or healthcare professional who has experience of home parenteral nutrition, please consider completing the questionnaire asking for your views. You are the people who have a direct insight into the research needs in parenteral nutrition and your views need to be informing the research agenda. The information that you give us will feed into a process to produce a list of the top ten international research priorities. These priorities will be promoted to bodies which fund healthcare research. Make sure your voice is heard in the research agenda.

The first part of the project was to determine topics for the initial phase which would then be short-listed for the second round of voting."
