Protein needs in ICU and beyond

About the webinar:

Critical illness is synonymous with impaired functional recovery and a major driver of muscle wasting that occurs early in ICU admissions. Join us for our upcoming webinar Protein needs in ICU and beyond with Associate Professor Lee-anne Chapple. In this webinar you’ll be provided with evidence-based guidance on protein prescription and delivery, what is known about how much protein is prescribed and uncover whether the protein provided is utilised to build muscle. Plus, Lee-anne discusses protein recommendations for patients post ICU and the implications of impaired protein utilisation on patient recovery.


About the speaker:

Associate Professor Lee-anne Chapple is the Senior Critical Care Dietitian at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and a Research Fellow at the University of Adelaide in Adelaide, Australia. She leads the intensive care nutrition research program at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, conducting research that focuses on nutrition physiology during critical illness and early recovery. In particular, A/Prof Chapple has an interest in understanding protein delivery and utilisation to improve recovery for critically ill patients.
