Pediatric Basic Skills Lab (T43)

Pediatric Basic Skills Lab (T43)


This program addresses a gap in knowledge for those who are new to pediatric nutrition support. It is designed to provide basic information that can be used as a foundation for understanding complex concepts in pediatric nutrition support and help participants integrate the knowledge from the various pediatric sessions at the Nutrition Science and Practice Conference. The lab is designed to be hands-on and interactive. Attendees can choose topics of interest related to pediatric enteral and parenteral nutrition, as well as nutrition assessment. They can feel free to drop in at any three stations during the skills lab. Join us for this interdisciplinary session and meet a diverse group of presenters from different nutrition support teams across North America.


  1. Integrate the pediatric malnutrition guidelines into pediatric nutrition assessment for children with typical development and those with neurodevelopmental challenges
  2. Develop an appropriate plan of care for a neonate or child requiring enteral nutrition support including consideration of breast milk (if appropriate), enteral formulas, and access devices
  3. Formulate a nutrition care plan for a neonate or child receiving parenteral nutrition, including appropriate parenteral nutrition formulation and access devices
