Standard: $39.00
Members: $0.00

Description

This 3-hour virtual course will provide clinicians an opportunity to be updated on the available nasoenteric tube placement technologies, and the recommended methods for tube verification and securement. A focus of the course will be to compare and contrast the available technologies from a safety and clinical applicability aspect. The last part of the course will discuss the ASPEN recommendations for a clinician competency program for the placement and verification of nasoenteric tubes in adults. The course supports the recent ASPEN Best Practices publication “ Development of a Competency Model for Placement and Verification of Nasogastric and Nasoenteric Feeding Tubes for Adult Hospitalized Patients” (Nutrition in Clinical Practice, June 2021).

Part 1: Nasoenteric Tube Placement (90 minutes)

Part 1 will consist of five (5) 10-minute presentations. The first one is on blind tube placement by a clinician which will be followed by 4 manufacturers of enteral tube placement technologies. These presentations will be followed by a discussion of the technologies from a safety and clinical applicability perspective by an expert panel. The session will conclude with a 15-minute question and answer session.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the currently available enteral tube placement technologies.
  2. Summarize important safety concerns with enteral tube placement.
  3. Compare and contrast the available enteral tube placement technologies.
