For Dietitians A copy of this form should be kept by the CDR credentialed practitioner. CDR credentialed practitioners must have the form and the certificate in their files should they ever be audited. Failure to include both certificate and completed critical thinking tool will result in a failed audit and loss of the CPE credit.

Course Description

Successful transition of patients receiving tube feeding from hospital to home requires careful planning and appropriate documentation by a healthcare professional. Learn from a home tube feeding expert and nutrition educator about the key considerations to address upon discharge, including a potential change in the tube feeding regimen to support quality of life at home. Documentation required for home tube feeding coverage is discussed in addition to updates regarding the transition from legacy feeding tubes and feeding supplies to the ISO 80369-3 compliant devices, commonly known as ENFit®.
