Parenteral Nutrition (PN) is a form of nutrition support that requires clinicians to have specific competencies. This webinar aims to achieve these competencies by providing a practical guide of “rules” for PN order writing for clinicians. These competencies will include a guide for the clinicians in transitioning PN from inpatient to home. Consideration of compatibility issues for medications with the components of PN, whether 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 solution and lipids, will also be addressed.

Learning Objectives

  1. Determine best practices for PN ordering writing and apply these practices to your institution
  2. Summarize the competencies needed to transition from inpatient to home PN
  3. Explain compatibility issues which should be considered when compounding 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 PN admixtures with a special emphasis on provision to neonatal/pediatric patients

Clinicians everywhere struggle with to care for the diverse array of patients with GI disorders. Patients with gastrointestinal (GI) diseases are at risk for compromised nutrition status. Alterations in GI function and physiology, either because of surgery or an underlying disease state, can result in a serious decline in one's nutrition status and quality of life. Understanding GI disorders and the tools available for their diagnosis and treatment allows the clinician to design an appropriate nutrition regimen and provide the best care to patients. This 2022-2023 lecture series will include presentations of common or very complex GI topics by clinicians who have worked at the bedside with these patients, and hence developed knowledge and skills that are not always in the textbook. Topics to be presented include:

  1. Diet and Management of Nutritional Deficiencies in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  2. Nutritional Aspects of Gastroparesis
  3. Feeding the Patient with an Injured Pancreas
  4. The Myth of Tube Feeding Intolerance—Hint: It’s Not the Tube Feeding

Each session will be moderated by the course director and GI nutrition support expert, Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RDN.

Overall Course Learning Objectives

  1. Summarize details involved in the nutritional care of patients with GI disorders.
  2. Identify reliable resources to explore more information regarding nutrition support and GI nutrition as it relates to various GI disease states.
  3. Differentiate appropriate drugs and their dosing for specific GI disease states.
  4. Improve collaboration between gastroenterologists and nutrition professionals.

Clinicians everywhere struggle with to care for the diverse array of patients with GI disorders. Patients with gastrointestinal (GI) diseases are at risk for compromised nutrition status. Alterations in GI function and physiology, either because of surgery or an underlying disease state, can result in a serious decline in one's nutrition status and quality of life. Understanding GI disorders and the tools available for their diagnosis and treatment allows the clinician to design an appropriate nutrition regimen and provide the best care to patients. This 2022-2023 lecture series will include presentations of common or very complex GI topics by clinicians who have worked at the bedside with these patients, and hence developed knowledge and skills that are not always in the textbook. Topics to be presented include:

  1. Diet and Management of Nutritional Deficiencies in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  2. Nutritional Aspects of Gastroparesis
  3. Feeding the Patient with an Injured Pancreas
  4. The Myth of Tube Feeding Intolerance—Hint: It’s Not the Tube Feeding

Each session will be moderated by the course director and GI nutrition support expert, Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RDN.

Overall Course Learning Objectives

  1. Summarize details involved in the nutritional care of patients with GI disorders.
  2. Identify reliable resources to explore more information regarding nutrition support and GI nutrition as it relates to various GI disease states.
  3. Differentiate appropriate drugs and their dosing for specific GI disease states.
  4. Improve collaboration between gastroenterologists and nutrition professionals.
