Nutrition for the Practicing Pediatric Clinician (NPPC-2018)

Pediatric patients present a myriad of challenges for the clinician. Join us for this course focusing on managing the pediatric patient from a nutrition perspective. This pre-conference course offers practical skills for clinical nutrition practice for dietitians, physicians, nurses, and pharmacists. Faculty experts will dive into a variety of topics, including the use of human milk in special populations, incorporating nutrition focused physical exam in a nutrition assessment, neonatal nutrition, calculating nutrient needs in the complex pediatric population, and treating feeding aversions in the tube fed child. 

  1. Describe the benefits of the use of human milk in fragile patient populations 
  2. State a current nutrient recommendation for the neonatal population 
  3. Identify the benefits of nutrition focused physical exam as part of a nutrition assessment 
  4. Identify a strategy in treating feeding aversion in the tube fed child 
  5. Assess the best tools to use to calculate the nutrient needs of the complex pediatric patient
