SYMP7 - MedEdicus: Case Discussions in PN: Managing Challenging Patients in the Continuum of Care

‐ Apr 22, 2023 7:30am

This symposium focuses on optimizing lipid injectable emulsions in parenteral nutrition throughout the continuum of hospital through home care. Cases will provide the latest practical approaches to providing care in neonates and adult hospital and home care patients. Compatibility, intestinal failure–associated liver disease, filtration, managing transitions of care, pediatric considerations, and shortages are some of the topics that will be covered.


  1. Describe the dosing of various lipid injectable emulsions to prevent essential fatty acid deficiency in adult and pediatric patients.
  2. Demonstrate appropriate use of lipid injectable emulsions in hospital and home adult patients.
  3. Demonstrate appropriate use of lipid injectable emulsions in pediatric/neonatal patients at risk for intestinal failure–associated liver disease.
