Liz will led the workshop estimating nutritional requirements Interactive Workshop- what is new? alongside Danielle Judges and Bruno Mafrici in the PENG Pocket Guide to Clinical Nutrition– what you need to know! breakout session

No Henry, no stress factors – what next?

Liz will give a brief introduction to the new guidelines and then delegates will be supported through a number of case studies using the new recommendations.

The main point about the requirements chapter is that we have used a formal guideline development process on which to base our recommendations. With regard to the energy section this means that the recommendations are no longer based on equations derived for healthy populations but are based on systematic reviews of clinical studies.
