Chris Mountford and Nick Thompson. Consultant Gastroenterologists and clinical leads for Nutrition Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
This course provides a broad grounding in clinical nutrition and allows medical and surgical trainees to develop increased awareness of the appropriate assessment and management of patients with malnutrition.
The course will be made up of a small group of delegates (maximum 30) who will benefit from small group workshops and case discussions. Whilst primarily targeted at trainees, we expect that the programme will carry broader appeal to a wider range of healthcare professionals. We would encourage those interested to attend.
The course meets the curriculum requirements for gastroenterology trainees required to attend a clinical nutrition course as part of training. The course previously has been officially endorsed by BAPEN, through their education and training committee and the BSG through the Education Committee.
