Caring for a child with feeding disorders in rural Australia

Post by mooki » Fri Mar 13, 2015 9:44 pm

Parents or carers living in rural areas of Australia and caring for a child with a feeding or swallowing difficulty (oropharyngeal dysphagia) are required for a research project conducted by a speech pathology student through Charles Sturt University. Participants may be currently caring for a child with a feeding or swallowing disorder, or have done so in the past.
Participant criteria: Any parent who has cared for a child with a feeding/swallowing disorder in a rural area of Australia. Such disorders may manifest from a baby being born premature, experiencing tube feeding, suffering gastroesophageal reflux, or having a cleft lip or palate etc.

Stage 1 of the study is an online questionnaire focusing on parental experiences of caring for an infant or child with feeding/swallowing difficulties in a rural area and access to feeding/swallowing services. This short online questionnaire will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete depending on length of answers provided.

This study had been approved by Charles Sturt University Ethics Committee.

ABA Research Approval Number 2015-3
