dc.descriptionAims To examine; (a) the number of registered dietitians (RDs) with blended tube fed (BTF) patients, work setting and caseload; (b) attitudes and experiences towards BTF; (c) current BTF supports and future resources required. Methods An online survey collected information from Irish RDs over one month. Data was examined using cross-tabulations and Mann-Whitney U tests. Free-text was categorized into thematic domains. Results A significant number of RDs with HEN paediatric patients concurrently managed BTF patients (n = 27/48, 56.3%, p<0.05). The majority were based in tertiary hospitals (HEN; n = 20/48, 41.7%, BTF; n = 12/27, 44.4%). Equal numbers were willing to support BTF or on a patient-case basis (n = 36/77, 46.8%). International guidelines were most used to inform RDs (n = 40/69, 58.0%). Professional training workshops were the preferred learning method (n = 60/73, 82.2%). Conclusion Overall, BTF appears to be a growing practice. Community services, professional guidelines, training and information are needed.en_US
