Long-term use of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) can cause life-threatening complications. Patients that rely on TPN benefit from programs such as Intestinal Rehabilitation, with the end goal of weaning them off TPN and thus improving their quality of life. Creating a multidisciplinary team of dedicated surgeons, psychologists, nurses, dietitians and social workers can help enhance the outcomes for patients battling intestinal failure.
During this session hear from Joel Lim, MD on the importance and success gained from having a multidisciplinary approach in caring for pediatric patients with intestinal failure.
