ASPEN - Webinar - The Use and Operationalization of Standardized Commercially-Available Parenteral Nutrition (SCAPN) During PN Shortages

December 11, 2018,  2:30 PM - 4:00 PM 

Event Type: Webinars

Parenteral nutrition component shortages are frequent and concerning to the nutrition support practitioner given the limited availability of therapeutic alternatives. Fortunately, during the last decade, several standardized commercially-available parenteral nutrition (SCAPN) products have entered the market. This presentation will cover the types of products available for use in the United States and the evidence regarding use of these products and patient populations to consider during shortages. The presentation will also describe the experience of operationalizing SCAPN in a rapid manner in a large, academic institution, highlighting "things to remember" when implementing use of these products with prescribing and electronic prescribing. The faculty will take a practical approach to presenting this information through the utilization of case presentations. 

Learning Objectives

  1. List the types of SCAPN available on the U.S. Market

  2. Summarize evidence associated with SCAPN

  3. Identify the challenges associated with implementing SCAPN in an institution 

  4. Discover safe practices for prescribing, dispensing, and administration
