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
This is a recorded workshop formatted into an on-demand workshop.
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
