Workshop B: Nutritional Support for the Transplant Patient, Pre, During and Post Transplant

Presentation Description:  There are a variety of nutritional issues that arise before, during, and after transplant, especially in the pediatric population.  This workshop aimed to review the most current knowledge and evidence-based practice in nutritional care and support, in an effort to assist the attendees in their own practices. Topics covered included: pre-transplant assessment and goals, nutrition support (enteral and parenteral), special diets used post transplant, as well as the main nutritional concerns at discharge. The workshop also touched on the uncommon complications as experienced at Sick Kids.  In an effort to provide a practical and interactive approach, case studies were presented with an opportunity for discussion.
