ASPEN Guidelines for Parenteral Nutrition: An Update
Recorded On: 05/06/2017
Infusion nurses give parenteral nutrition in every practice setting. Since 1975, the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) has led in the science and practice of clinical nutrition. ASPEN guidelines assist practitioners in providing best practices in specific circumstances, such as neonates at risk for necrotizing enterocolitis, pediatric patients with intestinal failure, and adult hyperglycemia or obesity. This session will review current ASPEN guidelines for the provision and assessment of nutritional therapy.
After the session, attendees will be able to identify a goal of parenteral nutrition therapy and an assessment tool for nutritional support.
