Based on the
response from our international members, A.S.P.E.N. is interested in expanding
the scope of the NOVEL project beyond the United States! If you are an
international member who works with pediatric or neonatal patients and have a good understanding of English, this may
be of interest to you.
of the NOVEL project will remain the same: work with others to develop
or morph existing technologies to allow for non-radiologic verification of
feeding tube placement, to discern best practices regarding current methods for
nasogastric feeding tube verification and to disseminate this
information. We are hoping to have a face to face meeting at Clinical
Nutrition Week to explore the possibility of expanding the NOVEL project to
other countries. If you are interested in participating, please email
Beth Lyman at [email protected]. For those who cannot attend Clinical Nutrition Week,
please send an email indicating your interest.
