This was a qualitative study examining families? experiences when tube-feeding their children in community environments. Caregivers were interviewed to gain their perspectives. Caregivers were parents or foster parents to a child or multiple children who had a gastrostomy tube. It is important for professionals to understand the family experience when coaching other families on incorporating feeding tubes into their lives.
