NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents
A Seat at the Table: Everything you ever wanted to know about tube feeding
Presented by Sara Greenlee MA CT, Megan Greenlee RD, CDN
What is it about?
Tube feeding is an intervention used in almost every area of medicine: neonatology, pediatrics, geriatrics, obstetrics, surgery, behavioral health, and many more. Come learn from an Advanced Nutritional Support Dietician which patients are candidates for feeding tubes and why. In this webshop, we will cover the types of tubes that can be offered, what goes in them, and how patients and caregivers are taught to care for them. Live exercises will work on interpretation skills and vocabulary building so that you will never have to ask what a “tubbie” is or how decanting works. Our expert will walk you through every step and have you feeling like a pro in no time!
Goals of the webshop
Become familiar with the different types of feeding tubes, the process of placing each type of feeding tube, the basics of feeding tube care, common formulas/formula types, and expected follow up
- Recognize vocabulary and concepts related to feeding tubes and situate them in context
- Improve interpretation-related skills that will be used in encounters involving feeding tubes
- Build a glossary to help prepare for sessions or translations involving feeding tubes

An Interactive Webshop
What is a “webshop”?
A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation are expected; that’s what makes it fun!
Before you register, make sure that your online setup meets the equipment and connectivity requirements. Please read these important Requirements (click below) before proceeding with your registration.
Via the web (before midnight on January 23rd). After registering, you will receive an email confirmation; if you do not receive a confirmation, your registration did not go through.
Credit status will be updated upon approval
