The Barriers Questionnaire involves surveying ICU staff about important barriers to enterally feeding critically ill patients in your unit.
The questionnaire is divided into 2 sections. Part A asks about 21 items related to providing adequate EN to patients and asks respondents to rate how important each barrier is in their ICU. Part B asks about the personal characteristics of the respondent. Respondents have the option of completing the questionnaire electronically or completing a paper based version of the questionnaire.The questionnaire is brief and should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
