Senior physicians' estimates of the likely effects of feeding policies on outcomes prior to the completion of the FOOD trials

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

SIR—The FOOD trials were a family of three multicentre international randomised controlled trials that aimed to estimate the effects of different feeding policies on outcomes of stroke patients [1, 2]. Their purpose was to identify the most effective feeding interventions, which could be included in guidelines so that variation in practice could be reduced and patient outcomes improved. In this study, we aimed to assess the likely impact the trial results would have on actual feeding practices by comparing physicians’ estimates of treatment effects with those from the trials themselves.
