Educational Resources & Shared Learning: General Surgery & Urology

In January 2022 the network facilitated a Management of Surgically Placed Feeding Tubes in Children education session led by colleagues from Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. The session included feedback from a regional survey carried out to understand current pathways and practice which was delivered by Catherine Bradshaw (Consultant Surgeon), and presentations on Gastrostomy and Gastrojejunal tube types, insertions and indications by Catherine Bradshaw, and Gastrostomy and Gastrojejunal tube care and common complications by Rebecca Swinbank & Kate Wills (Gastrostomy Clinical Nurse Specialists). NHS colleagues can watch the recording of the session
on the SW SIC NHS Futures platform.
