Morgan, S., Hurt, C. S. and Craig, G. M. (2015). Parental decision making and gastrostomy: Professional’s awareness of conflict and strategies for support. Poster presented at the European Academy of Childhood Disability Conference 2014, 3-5 Jul 2014, Vienna, Austria.

Abstract

Parental decision making regarding children’s need for a gastrostomy is often described as one of ‘decisional conflict’ (Mahant et al. Pediatrics 2011; 127(6):1471-148). Studies investigating parents’ experiences have made various recommendations to improve healthcare professionals’ (HCPs) practice. However there are few studies investigating HCPs’ views and current practice.
