PEG Feeding Awareness Level 2
The PEG Feeding Awareness Level 2 course aims to provide learners with essential knowledge and understanding of the principles of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) feeding. PEG feeding is a procedure in which a feeding tube is inserted directly into the stomach through the abdominal wall, allowing for the delivery of nutrition and fluids to individuals who are unable to consume adequate amounts orally.
Successful completion of the course will result in the issuance of a certificate that remains valid for 3 years. This certification recognizes the learners' understanding of PEG feeding principles.
The course has a duration of 3 hours, allowing participants to gain valuable insights and knowledge within a concise timeframe. The training sessions are designed to be interactive and engaging, incorporating discussions, case studies, and practical exercises to enhance learning and application of skills.
