Cygnet Annual Psychiatrists Conference and National Awards Ceremony 2021 | Wednesday 15th September 2021 09:30 – 16:30.
Following an acquired brain injury, an individuals’ journey from the acute setting through neurorehabilitation and beyond is often filled with a number of nutritional challenges. This day will aim to explore these challenges and offer practical ideas that can be implemented when working with this complex patient group.
At the RHN the majority of our patients receive some or all of their nutrition and hydration via an enteral feeding tube. We will explore the trends and changes in nutritional requirements across the patient journey, including a basic look at the common types of tube in use. This encompasses the changes from the extremely high requirements post injury to the low energy requirements of a stable long term enterally fed patient.
The course will also look at the issues involved with withdrawal of nutrition and hydration as well as the practical and theoretical aspects of assessing capacity for nutrition related issues.
Please note that these sessions are facilitated via Zoom and session two will lead on from session one in content and sequence.
