Supported by an educational grant from Abbott Nutrition
Robert Murray, MD, and Jae H. Kim, MD, discuss practical interventions for patients in 2 case studies that depict the challenges commonly faced in practice relative to infant malnutrition. The link between preterm birth and future nutritional status, some of the causes and signs of malnutrition, and screenings/assessments will be reviewed. For each case study, the faculty will discuss the application of evidence-based guidelines for treatment and the importance of involving parents and caregivers in nutrition-related decisions.
Pediatricians, primary care providers, and neonatal clinicians
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
Recognize both the common and less common signs of infant malnutrition
