Enhancing critical care nutrition with INTENT

Date & Time
Wed 31 Jul 9:00 am - 10:00 am AEST
About the webinar:

Join Associate Professor Emma Ridley, as she discusses the results of The Intensive Nutrition Therapy comparEd to usual care iN criTically ill adults – a randomised controlled trial (INTENT RCT). Conducted across 23 hospitals in Australia and New Zealand, this trial investigates whether a pre-tested supplemental parenteral nutrition (PN) strategy in the ICU, followed by an intensive nutrition intervention post-ICU, increases total energy delivery and improves patient outcomes compared to standard care.  Throughout the presentation, Emma will discuss the learnings, challenges, and real-life applications of conducting such trials, including how the findings can be applied in practice to improve patient outcomes.
