Enteral Nutrition is used to provide nutrition to patients who are unable to take nutrients by mouth, and in whom the gastrointestinal tract is functional. In addition, the enteral route may be used to provide nutrients which may impact the course of disease, such as in the case of inflammatory bowel disease or antibiotic associated diarrhea in critical illness. The exact timing, route and composition of the nutrients provided enterally may also impact outcome for patients—this is described in the protocol development for the EFFORT trial in critical illness. In addition, there are large numbers of patients who receive long-term enteral nutrition in the home. Standards do not exist for Home Enteral Nutrition (HEN). The results of a North American survey of seven HEN programs will be presented and used to describe program components necessary for comprehensive care of the patient on home enteral nutrition, including a discussion of patient characteristics, enteral access devices, product use, outcomes and staffing considerations for home enteral nutrition programs.Dr. Leah Gramlich
