Overview

RDs In Practice is an educational program aimed at advancing clinical knowledge and ideas in specialty areas of pediatric nutrition. CHOC’s Clinical Nutrition & Lactation Department has been hosting conferences providing education for specialty and/or advanced level registered dietitians and other professionals since 2013. Didactic lectures, question/answer sessions, and networking opportunities will allow time for attendees to discuss emerging topics, evidence based practice and solutions to practice dilemmas.

The aim of this conference is to provide advanced level education on infant & toddler nutrition with an emphasis on feeding, allergy, breast milk and formula preparation, and neonatal and surgical nutrition.

Topics to Include:

  • Best Practices for Handling Human Milk & Formula in Healthcare Facilities
  • Lactoengineering & Case-Based Panel Discussion of Utilizing a Breast Milk Analyzer to Guide Clinical Interventions
  • Neonatal and Surgical Nutrition
  • Complementary Feeding in Infants at Low- and High-Risk of Developing Food Allergies
  • Medical & Nutritional Management of FPIES and EoE
  • Management Strategies for a Variety of Feeding Challenges Presenting in Neonates through Toddlerhood

Program Objectives:

Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Provide nutritional management to infants using evidenced-based guidelines for nutrition support, handling of human milk and formula, breastfeeding, and nutrient composition of human milk and formula.
  2. Manage feeding challenges of premature infants, children with dysphagia, selective feeders and picky eaters by utilizing evidenced-based strategies to improve feeding skills, behaviors and nutrition.
  3. Provide optimal early nutrition support for surgical infants to improve wound healing, immunity, and preservation of lean body mass while preventing TPN induced cholestasis and other nutritional complications.
  4. Recognize the clinical presentation of patients with food allergies, FPIES, and EoE and provide appropriate medical and nutritional management using current best practice guidelines.
