PHRM 909 Nutrition Support
This course will provide the student with an advanced understanding of specialized nutrition therapeutics. The course will build upon the nutrition knowledge students gained in IPC 5 and allow them to apply this knowledge to specific patient populations. We will explore nutrition support therapy in neonates and pediatrics, the critically ill patient, the home patient, and geriatrics. Student's skills in presenting nutrition information to professional colleagues and to the general public will be enhanced through journal club presentations and individual projects. Practical application of delivery of enteral and parenteral nutrition will be reviewed and the role of the pharmacist in nutrition support will be highlighted.
