Topic: 1 Year of COVID: Clinical Nutrition Success and Lessons Learned 

Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) has posed unique experiences to standard nutrition care in the health care system. Limited literature in this specific patient population is available leading to best practices being extrapolated from previous publications and shared by ASPEN with nutrition care teams across the nation.  

This program will pull panelists together for an open conversation to discuss experience applying best practices managing COVID patients at a system and bedside level.


  1. Identify potential solutions to minimize tube feeding supply chain disruption for patients
  2. Apply evidence-based care to anticipate nutrition needs and proactively manage complex COVID-19 patients
  3. Recognize and apply solutions for clinical frontline clinicians to collaborate with multidisciplinary care team for batch care of COVID-19 patients
