Journal Article
Egunsola, O., Sammons, H. M., Ojha, S., Whitehouse, W. P., Anderson, M., Hawcutt, D., & Choonara, I. (2017). Protocol for a prospective observational study of adverse drug reactions of antiepileptic drugs in children in the UK. BMJ Paediatrics Open, 1(1), https://doi.org/10.1136/bmjpo-2017-000116

Background Epilepsy is a common chronic disease of children that can be treated with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). AEDs, however, have significant side effects. Newer AEDs are thought to have fewer side effects. There have, however, been few comparati...

Multicentre prospective observational study of feeding practices in 30–33 weeks preterm infants (2017)
Journal Article

Background: Current evidence supports progressive feeding in preterm infants. Due to lower necrotising enterocolitis risk, recent studies suggest starting total enteral feeding from birth in 30–33 weeks preterm infants. The feasibility of this practi...
