Event description

Description

The East of England Branch of the British Dietetic Association is hosting their 2nd event of CPD and networking.

The focus of this event will be the use of the blended diet in tube feeding. As popularity of this type of feeding increases it is important that dietitians are equipped with the knowledge of the latest evidence in this area. This event will cover what the latest evidence states, practicalities in tube feeding with a blended diet and dietitans sharing their own experiences of supporting patients with this method of feeding. We will also look at tube feeding, what difficulties we have and how we can overcome these.

This event will be of interest to any dietitians but in particular those working in the areas of community, paediatrics, learning disability, home enteral feeding, the acute setting and anyone looking to widen their knowledge in this area.
