Description

Gerard Minor, is a physician assistant specialising in paediatric gastroenterology and nutrition in Florida. He has carried out a study using Peptamen Jr that was presented at the NASPGHAN conference, Feb 2016, and published in the journal of Global Paediatric Health. Gerard spoke at our ND study day in May 2016 and we recorded his presentation.

    The video includes:
  • Feeding intolerances in children with NI
  • Differences between whey and casein formulas
  • Results from the RETROPEP study

    Suggested reflection points:
  • What do you feel the most important outcomes of the study were?
  • What is the prevalence of feeding intolerance like in your caseload?
  • What symptoms do you find most difficult to manage?
  • Did you learn anything new from the video?
  • How could this learning support your future practice?
  • Do you have any complex patients with feeding difficulties that can benefit from using Peptamen Junior? Would you benefit from a brief update about the Peptamen Junior range?
