Why should you attend?
Delivery of nutrients to meet the metabolic needs of critically ill patients is essential for reducing morbidity and mortality. Initiation of early parenteral nutrition for patients with short-term relative contraindications to enteral nutrition has been shown to have a positive effect on patient outcomes. Critical care physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and dietitians who are interested in learning more about the use of parenteral nutrition for critically ill patients to reduce duration of mechanical ventilation, intensive care unit length of stay, and overall costs will want to register today.

Dr. Doig is renowned expert in the field of critical care medicine with a specific focus on optimizing patient nutrition to reduce morbidity and mortality. In this webinar, he will focus on the evidence demonstrating the benefits of initiating early parenteral nutrition in critically ill patients unable to tolerate early enteral feeding.

1. Compare findings between patients receiving early parenteral nutrition and those receiving standard care in a large, multicenter trial.
2. Identify changes in body composition and metabolism in critically ill patients.
3. Describe the effects of early parenteral nutrition on duration of mechanical ventilation and intensive care unit length of stay.
4. Discuss the financial impact of early parenteral nutrition overall cost of hospitalization.
