The Pediatric Nutrition Academy: NEW ESPGHAN/ESPEN/ESPR Guidelines on pediatric parenteral nutrition -international symposium with the authors, will take place in NH Hotel Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam on 13 December 2018.

Background: Recently revised guidelines on Pediatric Parenteral Nutrition (PN) were published by the European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN), the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN), the European Society of Paediatric Research (ESPR) together with the Chinese Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (CSPEN).

Methods: Experts participating in the guideline updating process were all professionals with extensive experience in managing PN. The guideline development process was coordinated by a guideline steering committee. Each chapter of the guideline was prepared by a separate author group. Based on the evidence level of included studies experts formulated and graded recommendations.

Results/conclusions: The updated guidelines contain information and recommendations for the use of PN across the wide range of pediatric patients, ranging from extremely premature infants up to teenagers weighing up to and over 100 kg. It covers their individual macro- and micronutrient needs, fluid requirements, venous access, organizational aspects, home parenteral nutrition, standardized vs. individualized PN, and last but not least a wide range of safety considerations for prevention and management of complications such as central line associated bloodstream infections.

Aim of the Baxter Pediatric Nutrition Academy: to disseminate the content of the new guidelines and discuss with the authors the new recommendations and the rationale behind. Invited are pediatricians, neonatologists and pharmacists involved in working with infants, children and adolescents receiving PN.
