In this webinar we are joined by Registered Dietitian Sarah Fuller who shares how we can practically apply current research to support someone nutritionally who needs feeding under restraint for life saving treatment.


Learning Outcomes for the Webinar:

Understanding Dietetic Guidance on Feeding Under Restraint. Attendees will develop an understanding of the principles and practical applications of dietetic guidance when working with clients needing the intervention of feeding under restraint for life saving treatment.

Navigating Ethics and Legalities in Feeding Under Restraint: Our speaker will share the ethical and legal dimensions of providing nutritional support to individuals under restraint.

Reducing Trauma: We will share effective clinical nutritional strategies and approaches to support a reduction of trauma in the context of feeding under restraint. This includes sensitivity to the psychological aspects of nutrition, aiming to create a more supportive environment for those people needing this intervention for life saving treatment.

Practical application through Case Studies: Through the sharing of real-life case studies and example dietetic plans, our speaker will share the consideration we need to take into account when being involved in shared decision-making in the context of feeding under restraint.
