Parenteral Nutrition Order Writing Workshop (PNW-2019)

Mar 23 | 7:00AM - 4:00PM

Pre-Conference Course

Parenteral Nutrition Order Writing Workshop (PNW-2019)

The workshop is designed to train clinicians to assess a patient requiring parenteral nutrition (PN) and subsequently initiate and manage the PN therapy for that patient. The workshop will be offered in two sessions. The first will emphasize the basic concepts of PN order writing and management and the second will allow for application of the knowledge gained through work in small groups on sample patient cases with distinguished faculty experts. 
Workshop capacity is limited to 40 participants, so register early. This small class size will be optimal for hands-on learning with the course faculty to ensure each participant completes the course with improved skills in creating and managing PN orders.  Course registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the ASPEN Parenteral Nutrition Workbook: Cases and Worksheets for Adult, Pediatric, and Neonatal Patients.
