Enteral Feeding “Intolerance”: It's NOT About the Tube Feeding
Register Here

Date: August 17, 2021
Time: 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

Enteral nutrition (EN) is an effective way to nourish patients; however, many barriers exist that prevent consistent and effective delivery of EN in the hospitalized patient. Many of these barriers are patient specific issues, often referred to as "EN intolerance" or "complications of EN." These terms are extremely vague and require further exploration by the clinician. The real problem may be related to the underlying disease state or may be due to inadequate or inappropriate medication treatment. In some cases, the patient may not be able to articulate what is wrong, and it is easy to attribute the patient's symptoms to the EN. Identifying the root cause of these patient specific barriers allows the clinician to intercede appropriately and to ensure that patients receive the EN intended. In this era of high-tech medicine, clinical skills may be eclipsed by new technologies, diagnostics, and therapeutic advances; however, basic clinical assessment skills are critical for accurate assessment of the enterally-¬fed patient. Many current practices surrounding the provision and monitoring of EN are not evidenced-based, nor physiologically sound. This webinar will explore common patient specific barriers (gastric residual volumes, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, pain, constipation, and initiation and progression of EN), arm the clinician with strategies to manage such obstacles to improve nutritional delivery to patients, and change the paradigm from "EN intolerance/complications" to "root cause analysis of GI symptoms. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. Recognize barriers to successful enteral feeding in the hospitalized patient
    2. Identify common myths surrounding EN “intolerance or complications” including diarrhea, constipation, gastric residual volumes, hyperosmolar formulas, and flow rates
    3. Develop a systematic approach to identify the root cause of the patient specific barrier in order to improve enteral feeding delivery

      Electronic Health Record (EHR) Webinar Series

      This virtual roundtable series provides opportunities for participants to network with colleagues who utilize the same electronic health record (EHR) platform and obtain practical tips and tricks for integration of clinical nutrition into the systems. There will be four total webinars for each of the following EHR platforms: Epic and Cerner. Two webinars will focus on parenteral nutrition (PN) issues and two on general nutrition support (malnutrition documentation, oral nutrition supplements (ONS) and enteral nutrition (EN) ordering and documentation).

      Each webinar will be one hour in duration. Participants will be segmented into groups specific to either Epic or Cerner. Virtual roundtables will be held via the Zoom platform to allow for interactivity among faculty and participants. The total capacity for each webinar is limited to 100. Recordings of webinars will not be available after the event.     

        Learning Objectives

        1. Improve nutrition assessment documentation within the EHR. 
        2. Describe processes for ONS or EN ordering within the EHR.
        3. Outline challenges and solutions to ordering PN within the EHR.
        4. Optimize EHR functionality for PN compounding and administration.

        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
