Questionnaire on the role of imaging in the management of Necrotizing Enterocolitis
Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) remains a clinical and diagnostic challenge in neonatal care. Imaging is an important part of its management, but routines and methods vary between hospitals and countries. This survey, which is distributed to neonatologists and pediatric surgeons mainly in Europe and the United States, aims at mapping current perceptions of the role that medical imaging plays and should (or could) play in caring for patients with known or suspected NEC, as well as the interaction between radiologists and clinicians in this respect. A similar questionnaire is distributed to pediatric radiologists for comparison of perspectives between the different specialties involved. The result can hopefully be used as a base for further discussion on the optimal use of medical imaging for diagnosing and monitoring the disease.
Submit an article to Children, an international open access journal dedicated to the dissemination of peer-reviewed science related to childhood health and disease in developed and developing countries. The publication will focus on sharing clinical, epidemiological, translational and basic science research relevant to children’s health.
Public consultation on Commission guidelines on paediatric investigation plans
As you may be aware, the European Commission has recently requested the European Medicines Agency and its Paediatric Committee to suggest amendments to the current guidelines concerning the format and content of paediatric investigation plans.
Therefore, based on your experience, we ask you to comment on the items open for consultation (please see the attached document).
Please note that providing your comments to GRiP does not prohibit you from responding to the consultation directly as individuals.
Please submit your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 1st December 2013.
