Dickerson Contributes to New Nutritional Management Guidelines
On November 12, 2010, Roland (Rolly) Dickerson, PharmD, Professor of Clinical Pharmacy, presented “Monitoring Nutrition Therapy in the Critically Ill Obese Patient” at the Nestlé Nutrition/American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) Obesity in Critical Care Workshop in Las Vegas, Nevada. His presentation will be published in a supplement in the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (JPEN). A new set of guidelines for the nutritional management of the critically ill obese patient will also be generated as a result of this day-long conference. Dr. Dickerson was the only non-physician invited to present and contribute to the guidelines. The session was videotaped to be used in the future for CE credit for MDs, nurses, dietitians, and pharmacists.
