When a person’s ability to eat or swallow normally becomes compromised, there is a vital need to supply them with nutrition, hydration and often medication, while simultaneously reducing the risks of chest infection related to aspiration. Enteral or ‘PEG’ feeding can provide a life-saving solution for patients in this situation.

This Enteral Feeding course has been developed by healthcare industry training professionals, Espirita, and addresses the types of medical conditions that could lead to a person requiring a feeding tube. It provides practical knowledge on gastrointestinal tract anatomy, types of feeding tube available in relation to individual feeding regimes, plus information on administering medication, care and the complications associated with enteral feeding.
