The Dietary Management of Complex Gastroenterology Patients
For the first time, the Paediatric Gastroenterology Academy will provide a study day that focuses on the nutritional management of the more complex gastrointestinal conditions that are seen in clinical practice. This study day will cover a variety of gastrointestinal conditions with the aim to provide healthcare professionals with in-depth information on the nutritional challenges of each condition. Using valuable feedback from previous study days, we have put together an interesting programme beginning with how to recognise when conditions become complex, followed by discussing the nutritional management in specific conditions including short bowel syndrome, gastrointestinal complications in oncology patients and management of diarrhoeal conditions. The programme further includes an in-depth discussion of complex feeding difficulties; use of specialist feeds in nutritional support and interpreting gastrointestinal investigations in a nutritional context.
The day is aimed at healthcare professionals with a specialist interest in nutrition support in gastrointestinal conditions. Lectures will be given by specialist dietitians, speech and language therapists and gastroenterologists that regularly see these patients and will include practical sessions in the afternoon to allow participants to discuss the day to day management, complications and exceptions.
We look forward to welcoming you to what will prove to be an interactive and stimulating study day.
