Intestinal failure is the rarest organ failure, but its prevalence across Europe is increasing. Patients have complex conditions and requirements, and optimal care involves multiple specialties and disciplines. Home parenteral nutrition — the first-line treatment for chronic intestinal failure — can significantly impact patients’ lives.
This online course provides in-depth coverage of all aspects of intestinal failure and parenteral nutrition. Authors Shameer Mehta and Sarah Williams discuss the aetiology and management of short bowel syndrome, followed by the causes, classification and management of intestinal failure.
This course is suitable for gastroenterologists in training, colorectal surgeons, nutrition nurses, dietitians, intensivists, and other healthcare professionals looking after patients receiving parenteral nutrition.
