Our Delphi 2014-2015 paper accepted!

Published on Friday, 25 November 2016

Thank you to all our members who completed the Delphi Study 2014-2015. 

In 2014, our members responded to “Thinking about your clinical practice, what are the most important research questions which need addressing?” by suggesting 189 research questions. In early 2015, 163 members rated each of the top 23 questions from not important (1) to very important (5). The top five questions ranked in Stage 2 were related to obesity management, ASD trajectories, crying babies, shared care between paediatricians and specialist paediatricians, accessing services for families with chronic conditions.
