Managing the Hematopoietic Cell Transplant Patient
Register Here

Date: November 2, 2021
Time: 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

This webinar will highlight nutrition assessment components, review nutrition support practices, and describe nutritional implications associated with gastrointestinal GVHD in hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) recipients. Patients undergoing HCT are a highly heterogenous population in terms of their nutrient needs and requirement for nutrition intervention. The implications of dose-intensive conditioning regimens, coupled with the debilitating effects of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), can be extremely complex and adversely effect a patient's nutritional status. Decreased oral intake, increased nutrient requirements, and impaired nutrient utilization often necessitate medical nutrition therapy. The use of standard supportive care measures, including parenteral nutrition and enteral nutrition, have varied over the past four decades and are highly dependent upon the type of transplant being utilized.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Identify necessary components of a comprehensive nutritional assessment for patients undergoing hematopoietic cell transplantation
    2. Construct appropriate nutritional plan of care for patients undergoing hematopoietic cell transplantation 
    3. Describe nutritional implications associated with gastrointestinal graft versus host disease

    Nasoenteric Feeding Tube Placement in the Adult Patient: Safety and Competency
    Register Here

    Date: November 18, 2021
    Time: 1:00 – 4:00 PM ET

    This 3-hour virtual course will provide clinicians an opportunity to be updated on the available nasoenteric tube placement technologies, and the recommended methods for tube verification and securement. A focus of the course will be to compare and contrast the available technologies from a safety and clinical applicability aspect. The last part of the course will discuss the ASPEN recommendations for a clinician competency program for the  placement and verification of nasoenteric tubes in adults. The course supports the recent ASPEN Best Practices publication “ Development of a Competency Model for Placement and Verification of Nasogastric and Nasoenteric Feeding Tubes for Adult Hospitalized Patients” (Nutrition in Clinical Practice, June 2021).  

    Part 1: Nasoenteric Tube Placement (90 minutes)
    Part 1 will consist of five (5) 10-minute presentations. The first one is on blind tube placement by a clinician which will be followed by 4 manufacturers of enteral tube placement technologies. These presentations will be followed by a discussion of the technologies from a safety and clinical applicability perspective by an expert panel. The session will conclude with a 15-minute question and answer session. 

      Learning Objectives

      1. Identify the currently available enteral tube placement technologies.
      2. Summarize important safety concerns with enteral tube placement.
      3. Compare and contrast the available enteral tube placement technologies.

      Body Composition Tools in the ICU: Applications for Assessment and Monitoring of Nutritional Status
      Register Here

      Date: December 7, 2021
      Time: 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

      Caring for critically ill patients can be challenging for the entire care team. Conducting a thorough nutrition assessment is an integral part of developing a comprehensive care plan. Join us for this webinar where we will begin with a discussion on malnutrition and how muscle is a key component of nutrition status. Concepts of methods of different compartments representing muscle will be addressed with information on how computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, and bioimpedance techniques work, what they measure, and the opportunities and challenges (i.e. edema, obesity, positioning) in applying them in critically ill patients. The webinar will conclude with discussion on recent studies utilizing each of these techniques in the critical care setting, what was learned from these studies, and determining future directions for clinicians and researchers alike.
