Enteral Nutrition Access and Medication Administration

This webinar will explore enteral nutrition (EN) access, medication delivery and caring for enteral feeding tubes. The webinar will include education on the appropriate review and preparation of enteral medications to prevent complications with administration.  The identification of medications that are incompatible with or may have potential negative interactions with EN will be discussed. Concerns regarding the pharmacokinetics of different forms of medication and the use of pharmacologic agents to unclog feeding tubes will also be covered. The webinar next focus will be on the different types of commonly placed enteral feeding tubes and considerations to prevent complications. This session will focus on practical tips using case-based scenarios and up-to-date research studies.

Learning Objectives

  1. Assess three risk issues for medications which will present difficulties when administered via feeding tube.
  2. Evaluate a feeding tube clog using the recommended procedures and processes and select remedies to restore flow.
