Timing of Stoma Closure in Neonates (ToSCiN)

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 1: Survey of Clinician and Allied Health Professional Perspectives on Neonatal Stoma Closure. If you would like to participate in the survey, please follow the link below:
