Abstract

A pathway has been developed using a multidisciplinary group from within specialist palliative care to ensure a comprehensive approach to the insertion of gastromy tubes for patients with motor neurone disease (MND) with swallowing difficulties. The pathway has ensured that there is a coordinated approach and the professionals involved are clear as to their responsibilities in the discussion and planning of the insertion, ensuring the best support for the patient and family.
