Our clinician-led gastrostomy study days are run at various locations across the country each year, for up to 100 delegates. We listen to feedback from our delegates and constantly updating our study days to reflect their needs and wants. Delegates can look forward to more practical sessions including tube placement, stoma measuring, and care and maintenance tips, providing them with the opportunity to:
- Listen to experts in the field of gastrostomy placement and care
- Take part in hands-on workshops.
The study days provide an ideal forum for group discussion of local practices, and the opportunity to network with colleagues in the local area. These study days are aimed for healthcare workers involved in the care of patients with gastrostomies.
These events are funded by an educational grant and all proceeds go to two chosen charities:
Patients on Intravenous & Nasogastric, Nutrition Therapy (PINNT) is a national, independent, not-for-profit membership charity established for over 25 years providing mutual support and understanding to hundreds of adults and children and their families adapting to life on home artificial nutrition.
Children’s Hospices across Scotland (CHAS) is the only charity in Scotland that provides vital hospice services for children and young people with life shortening conditions.
SPECIAL UPDATE FOR 2020
With the current restrictions in place around the country, we’re running a series of online webinars instead. Please follow this link for more details and to register for a session.
