Saturday, 13 October 2018

In Latvia the World Hospice and Palliative Care day is being celebrated with a special masterclass “Nutrition Therapy Solutions for Palliative Care Patients”. Adequate nutritional intake is often difficult, if not impossible, for the palliative care patients. Therefore in order to ensure the intake of the necessary nutrients for the patients, special enteral nutrition drinks are given that often times have an unpleasant taste. The parents and the medical and care staff will be given the opportunity, by listening to lectures, as well as participating in practical workshops, to learn new recipes on how to prepare tasty foods from the special enteral blends and increase the calorie intake for patients suffering from malnutrition. The practical cooking masterclass is organized by The Children’s Palliative Care Society’s palliative care team and the “Nutricia” specialists.
