Course Description

Looking to expand your knowledge on Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG)? Our short course is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of this procedure.

PEG, or percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, is a feeding tube that is placed through the abdominal wall and into the stomach. This allows for direct delivery of nutrition, fluids, and medication, bypassing the mouth and esophagus.

In our information session, you’ll learn about the ins and outs of the PEG procedure, including how it’s performed, the benefits it can offer, and potential side effects that may occur. Our experienced instructors will guide you through the key concepts and best practices for working with PEG in a healthcare setting.

With our short course, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge needed to provide high-quality care to patients who require PEG. Whether you’re a healthcare professional or simply looking to expand your knowledge, this course is a must-have for anyone working in the healthcare field.
