Ramifications of Nutrient Shortages in the Neonatal Population

‐ Oct 7, 2021 3:45pm

Nutrient shortages are an on-going issue which healthcare providers are routinely facing. Immediate challenges of these shortages are obvious. However, the long-term effects or consequences are not as easily identifiable, especially in the neonatal population. This webinar hopes to address some of the impacts nutrient shortages have on this population and its correlation to malnutrition.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the necessary nutrition support and progression of feeding in the early life stage of the neonate, including nutrient requirements for proper growth.
  • Describe the challenges and strategies of nutrient shortages in providing adequate intake in the neonate requiring nutrition support.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the long-term effects nutrient shortages have on the normal growth of a neonate.
