gastro study day London 2024

Event Details:

 

Our gastro study is back for 2024, due to popular demand.

 

We will have an exciting programme of speakers poised to share their experiences. With tips on tube placement, care and maintenance, ethical considerations in enteral feeding, and an insight into the goings-on in our technical lab, it will be an interesting day for everyone involved.

 

Who Is This For?

 

This day will suit anyone involved in the care of paediatric patients with enteral feeding tubes, or who manage staff responsible for enteral maintenance.

 

Cost:

 

We fully fund these events ourselves, however, we do charge a ticket fee of £20, which we pass on in full to the charity PINNT (Patients on Intravenous & Nasogastric Nutrition Therapy).

Thanks to all 2023 attendees, we were able to donate £4,800 to PINTT.
