Tube Feeding and Care - PEG and PEJ - V2.0
Typical eLearning Duration:
1 hour 15 minutes
Supporting and caring for a person who is reliant on tube feeding can be an important part of a worker’s role.
Whether a worker is fully qualified to conduct the tube feeding, only permitted to assist or only authorised to observe... the daily care requirements and key responsibilities before, during and after each feed require most workers to know much more!
In addition to explaining the 3 main methods of PEG/PEJ tube feeding, this eLearning course covers many other important topics relating to the required skills, knowledge, training, work practices and authority for workers supporting and caring for a person who is reliant on tube feeding.
Understanding PEG/PEJ tube feeding, daily care of the stoma site, infection and hygiene control practices, identifying and addressing any problems, documentation, administering medication, and working within permitted boundaries are just a few examples of the many topics covered in the course.
