Consulting the Experts to Manage Challenging Cases (M42)

4:30 PM ET – 6:00 PM ET

Using a case-based format, three challenging cases of nutrition therapy will be presented to a multidisciplinary panel (physician, pharmacist, dietitian, nurse practitioner). Panelists will discuss the nuances in providing optimal, evidence-based care. The discussion will be focused on diagnosis, assessment, prescription, and monitoring of nutritional interventions, and the panelists will share their clinical practice strategies as well as “pearls” of wisdom.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Describe the challenges in providing nutrition therapy for a critically ill patient and discuss strategies to diagnose, prescribe, and monitor nutritional interventions
  2. Describe the challenges in providing nutrition therapy for a hospitalized intestinal failure patient with complex psychosocial issues and discuss strategies to diagnose, prescribe, and monitor nutritional interventions
  3. Describe the challenges in providing nutrition therapy for an outpatient short bowel syndrome patient and discuss strategies to diagnose, prescribe, and monitor nutritional interventions
