This session will provide attendees 'real world' application of medical nutrition therapy in chronically ill, malnourished surgical and medical patients. Discussion will include case studies of pancreatic surgery and congestive heart failure to highlight the full continuum of nutrition care from inpatient to post discharge. Speakers will address route of nutrition, monitoring of macro- and micronutrients, and disease sequelae affecting the nutrition plan.
