 Barriers Questionnaire - Revised September 2013

The questionnaire for assessing barriers to enteral nutrition delivery in ICUs has been revised in 2013 based on feedback from ICU practitioners. The barriers assessment 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.
