Malnutrition, Protein, and the Role of Early Enteral Nutrition: What's New Since the 2016 ASPEN/SCCM Guidelines
 An Informational Webinar, no CE Credit
4:00 - 5:30 PM ET (Eastern Time)
 

Description
Protein is a vital macronutrient for critically ill patients yet the optimal amount and its relationship to outcomes is not completely clear. New research on protein needs and the role of early enteral nutrition has been published since the 2016 ASPEN/SCCM guidelines were released. This free webinar will review the protein dosing and early EN outlined in the ASPEN/SCCM guidelines and discuss the new literature on protein dosing and the role of early enteral nutrition. The speakers will also address if/how this research has impacted practice for enteral nutrition in the critically ill patient. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Outline the ASPEN/SCCM guidelines for protein dosing and early enteral nutrition
  2. Review the new literature that has impacted practice since the development of the 2016 ASPEN/SCCM guidelines
  3. Translate recent research to evidence based practice for protein dosing in the critically ill patient
  4. Describe the rationale for current early enteral feeding of the critically ill patient based on recent literature
