Back by popular demand! Dr. Heyland will present new information in this upcoming webinar.

Enteral Nutrition is the preferred route of providing nutrients and is accepted as standard of care in critically ill patient. Historically, feeding protocols have been used to guide the delivery of enteral nutrition. They frequently utilize conservative, reactionary approaches to optimizing nutrition that are not grounded in evidence but rather, seem to have evolved over time. This program will review common barriers to providing adequate nutrition to critically ill patients and potential strategies to overcome these barriers. Included will be a review of the Enhanced Protein-Energy Provision via the Enteral Route Feeding Protocol – PEP uP Protocol. This innovative approach to feeding the critically ill patient as well as new approaches to educational intervention with healthcare staff will be introduced during this session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify common types of PN administration errors.
  • Describe system-based strategies to enhance the safety of PN administration.
  • List factors that promote or inhibit the use of the PN Safety Consensus Recommendations in the administration phase of PN.
  • Propose action items to promote use of the PN Safety Consensus Recommendations for PN administration.
