Basic Skills in Parenteral Nutrition Management (W34)


Many clinicians new to nutrition support require vital basic information in order to safely and effectively deliver parenteral nutrition to patients. This skills lab is set up to allow participants to move among stations to hear focused, interactive presentations, or walk through cases to enhance clinical practice skills. At the conclusion of this skills lab, participants will gain knowledge in parenteral nutrition appropriateness, fluid homeostasis, acid-base balance, micronutrient requirements, intravenous lipid emulsions, and basics on compounding safety.


  1. Select appropriate candidates for parenteral nutrition therapy
  2. Identify assessment and treatment strategies to manage fluid, electrolytes, and acid-base disorders in parenteral nutrition patients
  3. Create a safe parenteral nutrition formulation per compound and stability limits
  4. Choose the appropriate instances for use of standardized commercially available parenteral nutrition products
  5. Describe the differences between and uses of lipid intravenous emulsions
