The University of Sydney therefore requests nurses and doctors to participate in this global, ethically approved research study. This will provide a great opportunity for increasing knowledge and improving skin management practices for extremely preterm babies.

To participate, a nurse or doctor, the one who is most familiar with the respective unit skin care practices/guidelines, completes this short survey. The participation is voluntary with all information confidential and non-identifiable, stored on the REDCap server located at The University of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The survey can be accessed by clicking the link by clicking “yes” you are consenting to participate.
