Once the physician referral for the Interdisciplinary Feeding Team (IFT) evaluation has been received, you may be contacted to do an initial patient assessment over the phone by a nurse or nurse practitioner.

An interdisciplinary feeding team informational packet will be sent to you by the IFT referral management coordinator. The packet contains additional information regarding the feeding team clinic visit, a map of Cincinnati Children’s, and instructions to follow if insurance authorization is needed before your clinic visit.
