Fluids, Electrolytes, and Acid-Base 4-Part Series 

REGISTER FOR THE FULL SERIES

Description
Nutrition support clinicians perform a critical role in the identification and management of fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base abnormalities in the patients requiring specialized nutrition support. A comprehensive understanding of these disorders is critical for optimizing management of enteral and/or parenteral nutrition, as well as intravenous fluids. This four-part webinar series is intended for dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, physicians, or allied health professionals desiring to learn a systematic approach to fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base disorders. The overall objective of this series is to provide clinicians with the knowledge to accurately assess adult, pediatric, or neonatal patients given varying patient case scenarios.

Appropriate Parenteral Nutrition Prescribing in the Age of Drug Shortages

June 18, 2019 | 4:00 - 5:30 PM ET

REGISTER HERE

Description

Persistent shortages of parenteral nutrition (PN) components have led to a tendency of practitioners providing less than adequate dosing, which can lead to nutrient deficiencies and impair growth and healing. Clinicians who have entered practice within the last 10 years may have never cared for patients receiving PN therapy without a shortage of PN components. This webinar will use case examples of shortage management and discuss how it applies to best practice during and after the shortage has resolved. Cases will highlight macro and micronutrient shortages. The speakers will address what we have learned from shortages - are there practices that are appropriate post shortage and what role does cost play?

Learning Objectives
  1. Be able to identify credible resources to support PN prescribing best practices during and after shortage.
  2. Identify best practices for PN prescribing that are commonly overlooked due to recurrent PN component shortages.  
  3. Discuss the risks of continued shortage dosing post shortage in the acute and long-term adult and pediatric patient populations.

Description
 
Parenteral nutrition (PN) is a complex, high-alert medication. Appropriate provision of protein, carbohydrate, and lipid is vital to ensure adequate nutrition delivery. Macronutrient needs can vary based on disease states, medical interventions and complications. Assessing the needs of patients and providing adequate macronutrients are key steps leading to positive outcomes. This webinar will review methods to manage macronutrients in adult PN patients with various disorders and clinical scenarios. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the importance of adequate protein delivery and how it relates to various disease states.
  2. Describe appropriate provision of carbohydrates and lipids and their relation to parenteral nutrition.  
  3. Review the importance of glycemic control in the delivery of nutrition support.

Description
In times when parenteral nutrition (PN) is needed to meet nutritional requirements, expertise on management of macronutrients is imperative to maximize nutrition provisions in the most fragile pediatric or neonatal patients. The goal of this webinar is to empower the clinician to effectively manage glucose, amino acid, and lipid infusions to meet nutritional demands and provide guidance for clinical situations where macronutrients need fine tuning. 

Learning Objectives
