General Information

General Information

During a 3 days, 2 night stay we will try to address all the challenges linked to enteral nutrition in paediatric patient population. We will discuss enteral nutrition in patients on exclusion diets ( EOE, FODMAP, coeliac disease), discuss o.a. feeding strategies in neurological impaired patients and patients facing illnesses as IBD and intestinal failure. Moreover, we will dive into the state of the art knowledge on enteral feeding in critical ill and neonatology patients. We will have some time to discuss challenges in enteral feeding difficulties with some panels of experts during workshops and round table discussions.

The aim is to gather different specialties treating children requiring enteral support and nutrition including neonatologist, pediatric intensivists, gastroenterologists, pediatricians, dietitians and nurses with aim to further share experiences and practices.

The course language is English.
This school is supported by the ESPGHAN Education Partner Programme.
