On February 18th, the Saint Louis University Dietetic Interns participated in a Monday session all about nutrition support. The day included lessons on indirect calorimetry, TPN compounding, enteral nutrition, enteral tube placement, the RD's role in TPN, and ethical considerations in nutrition support. The interns enjoyed the hands on experience that the day included. Enjoy the below pictures from the day!
