Today, ASPEN released a new educational video series on the
appropriate use of parenteral nutrition (PN). Parenteral Nutrition is a viable,

Along with the videos, the SmartPN initiative, a collaboration
with Baxter, has produced a free care pathway that provides steps and online

Please view and share with your colleagues.
SmartPN is available
thanks to an educational grant from Baxter.
