Invitation: Timing of Stoma Closure in Neonates (ToSCiN) Survey

Dear Colleague,

We would be very grateful if you could help us with the Timing of Stoma Closure in Neonates (ToSCiN) study by completing this short survey. We apologise if you have already received this invitation directly.

ToSCiN is a mixed methods study, funded by the NIHR and led by Nick Lansdale, that aims to answer the question: is it feasible to conduct a clinical trial comparing ‘early’ vs. ‘late’ stoma closure in neonates? The survey aims to determine the viewpoints of UK clinicians and allied health professionals (AHPs) who regularly care for infants with stomas.

The collective expertise of clinicians and AHPs is essential for ToSCiN to be a success: your input would be greatly appreciated and will ensure the study answers relevant questions and provides useful information.

We would like to collect as many responses as possible and would be very grateful if you could share the above link with relevant colleagues.
Thank you
