An increase in the education and understanding of writing parenteral nutrition is needed for all patient populations. The overall purpose of this webinar series will be to provide the learner with the knowledge to accurately create a parenteral nutrition prescription for adult, pediatric, or neonatal patients given varying patient case scenarios.
The first session will introduce the learner to the decision process of which patients are appropriate for parenteral nutrition therapy, appropriateness of the patient's venous access, and the initiation and advancement of macronutrients within a parenteral nutrition solution.
The second session will introduce the learner to the decision process of initiation and advancement of micronutrients, particularly electrolytes, as well as, formulation and compounding challenges (e.g., osmolality, calcium-phosphate solubility, 2-in-1 vs 3-in-1).
Determine the appropriateness of parenteral nutrition for given a patient scenario
Describe the benefits and challenges of peripheral versus central venous access for a patient receiving parenteral nutrition
Develop a patient specific parenteral nutrition formulation considering initiation and advancement of volume, amino acids, dextrose, and injectable lipid emulsion
