Master Class On Parental Nutrition In Neonatal And Paediatric Intensive Care Units

Knowledge in parenteral nutrition (PN) has increased very rapidly in the past decades. Therefore, it is vital for the physicians to stay up-to-date with the latest research and treatment paradigms. The Committee on Nutrition (CoN) of ESPGHAN has decided to organize a two day Master Class in Clinical Parenteral Nutrition in order to share state-of-the-art nutritional knowledge and expertise specifically on parenteral nutrition for pediatric and neonatal intensive care patients. The lectures will not only aim at describing the various nutritional requirements of infants admitted either in the PICU or NICU, but also discuss how to apply them in practice. The upcomming ESPGHAN/ESPEN/ESPR guidelines will serve as the basis for the lectures of the faculty. Clinical cases will also be presented by both faculty and participants. Each participants will be asked to submit a clinical case prior to the course, some will be selected for presentation and discussion.

• To offer a comprehensive curriculum on pediatric parenteral nutrition, focusing on current challenging issues for both pediatric and neonatal intensive care practices
• To provide evidence-based guidance on the management of pediatric nutritional disorders commonly seen in PICUs and NICUs
• To provide unique opportunities to learn from and interact with expert faculty from various European centers in the field of pediatric nutrition

Participants and application
