PEG Feeding

The PEG Feeding course is designed to be delivered on-site at a venue chosen by the participants. The course has a duration of 6 hours and is priced at £875 for a maximum of 8 learners. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Certificate of Competency from FRT.

This course is specifically mapped to the National Occupational Standard SFHCHS17. The SFHCHS17 standard sets the guidelines and requirements for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) feeding in a particular industry or context. By aligning the course with this standard, it ensures that participants receive training that meets industry benchmarks and expectations related to PEG feeding.

During the 6-hour duration of the course, participants can expect to receive comprehensive instruction and practical training on various aspects of PEG feeding. The course covers topics such as understanding the purpose and indications for PEG feeding, PEG tube insertion and care, managing PEG feeding equipment, administering feedings, monitoring for complications, and addressing patient nutrition and hydration needs.

The course employs a variety of teaching methods, including theoretical presentations, interactive discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on practice. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their skills in PEG feeding, including proper hygiene practices, safe tube insertion and removal techniques, troubleshooting common issues, and providing education and support to patients and their caregivers.

By delivering the course on-site, participants benefit from the convenience of receiving training at a location of their choice. This also allows for potential customization of the course to address specific needs or challenges within the chosen venue, ensuring a more tailored learning experience.
