Date: October 18, 2022
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET

Parenteral Nutrition (PN) is a form of nutrition support that requires clinicians to have specific competencies. This webinar aims to achieve these competencies by providing a practical guide of “rules” for PN order writing for clinicians. These competencies will include a guide for the clinicians in transitioning PN from inpatient to home. Consideration of compatibility issues for medications with the components of PN, whether 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 solution and lipids, will also be addressed.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Determine best practices for PN order writing and apply these practices to your institution
    2. Summarize the competencies needed to transition from inpatient to home PN
    3. Explain compatibility issues which should be considered when compounding 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 PN admixtures with a special emphasis on provision to neonatal/pediatric patients
