    Neonatal sepsis, inflammation and anti-inflammatory therapies

    • IVIG has multiple immuno-modulatory properties

    • IVIG is an important candidate as an anti-inflammatory therapy in neonatal sepsis

    Reviews of the evidence that perinatal inflammation predisposes to neonatal brain damage

    • Clinician barriers included:

      • time constraints

      • lack of staff and training

      • worry about the impact on the doctor-patient relationship

      • concern for patients

      • loss of professional autonomy

      • difficulty with the consent procedure

      • lack of rewards and recognition

      • insufficiently interesting question.

    • Patient barriers included: systematic review.

      • additional demands of the trial

      • patient preferences

      • worry caused by uncertainty

      • concerns about information and consent.

    • There is no evidence on the impact of Digital Video Decoders (DVDs) or videos on knowledge or confidence of staff in obtaining consent, and on uptake of consent by parents.

    • We explored the effectiveness of a DVD/ video and accompanying booklet in 24 INIS sites in

      • describing consent delivery methods

      • improving knowledge about the INIS trial.

    Vinis video dvd booklet site intervention study
    VINIS: Video/ DVD + Booklet site intervention study (DVDs) or videos on

    • A pilot RCT in 24 ANZ INIS sites to explore

      • whether a video and booklet for staff who seek consent can improve their knowledge and confidence

      • its potential effect on recruitment rate.

    • 1645 Wednesday 5th April

    • Level 2 Meeting Room 11

    Data collection issues
    Data Collection issues (DVDs) or videos on

    • Excellent rate of completion and accuracy of CRFs

    • Consent forms

      • Please ensure that all signatures by parents and investigators and witnesses are complete

    • HIC consent forms

      • Please remember to ask new and old parents to complete this consent form (for economic analysis)

    • Days of respiratory support after INIS intervention

      • Please include all days the baby received any respiratory support in your hospital
