Expert Crossfire on the Safe and Appropriate Use of Parenteral Nutrition in Critically Ill Adults and Children

Breakfast will be served at 5:30am

Despite continued focus on nutrition in clinical settings, significant numbers of hospitalized children and adults are malnourished. This malnutrition increases rates of infections, morbidity, and lengths of stay, thereby increasing needs for hospital staff and overall healthcare costs. Individualized nutrition support is needed to prevent underfeeding. The nutrition support team requires up-to-date knowledge on nutrition risk assessment and practical application of nutrition support in critically ill adult and pediatric patients to reduce malnutrition in hospital settings.
  1. Discuss available evidence and tools in the assessment of nutrition risk in adult and pediatric ICU patients
  2. Outline guideline recommendations for the safe and effective use of PN in diverse critically ill patients
  3. Identify strategies to ensure appropriate initiation and management of PN
