Adult patients are sent home with enteral nutrition for many reasons, such as decreasing length of stay, preventing malnutrition, or improving wound healing. To ensure success in meeting nutrition goals at home and preventing hospital readmission, an effective nutrition care plan must be established prior to discharge. In this session, speakers will discuss the registered dietitian nutritionist's role on the multidisciplinary care team to establish an appropriate plan of care, as well as how the acute plan of care can be continued at home to ensure a smooth and effective continuum of care.
