ToSCiN is a mixed methods study that aims to answer the question: is it feasible to conduct a clinical trial comparing ‘early’ vs. ‘late’ stoma closure in neonates? The study comprises three parallel work-streams:
Work-stream 2: Parent and Clinician Perspectives Regarding a Clinical Trial of Neonatal Stoma Closure
Work-stream 3: Secondary Analysis of Three Existing National Databases
ToSCiN is taking place between March 2020 and February 2022 and is a collaborative study between Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit Clinical Trials Unit (NPEU CTU) at the University of Oxford.
