Baxter and ASPEN announce parenteral nutrition therapy collaboration

24th August 2017

Baxter has announced a new collaboration with the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) to expand access to parenteral nutrition therapy.

The SmartPN collaboration aims to provide healthcare professionals in the US with educational tools on the appropriate use of parenteral nutrition, which involves the intravenous administration of nourishment to those who cannot eat or absorb enough food.

These resources will be based on new consensus recommendations issued by ASPEN, which are intended to help promote clinical benefits and minimise risks associated with this type of therapy.

The campaign will be aimed at physicians, pharmacists, dietitians, nurses and other clinicians, with resources to include webinars, data visualisations, interactive tools, videos and other content.

Additionally, the organisations are seeking to raise awareness of the potential consequences of disease-related malnutrition and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.

Mary Russell, senior manager of medical affairs at Baxter, said: "It's important for us to work with highly-respected organisations like ASPEN to help increase awareness about the crucial importance of nutrition care and help clinicians most effectively administer this potential life-saving and life-sustaining therapy to patients."
