The aim of PICS: Nutrition Sub-Group is to establish a forum of interested health care professionals from the multi-disciplinary team providing a network for members to aid communication, education, supporting evidence-based best practice across centres to reduce variation in practice and advance the nutrition research agenda in paediatric intensive care. Our vision is for this group be multi-professional including nurses, medics, allied health professionals and others.
We will hold 2 meetings per annum; one at the annual PICS conference (November) and a second as a Nutrition symposium (March) where there will be education, research updates and networking opportunities for collaboration. Our inaugural meeting will be held at the “Working Together” PICS conference, London, 20-22nd November 2019; and our first nutrition symposium will follow in March 2020 hosted by Southampton Children’s Hospital.
PICS membership is required to participate in the group, but non PICS members will be able to attend the Nutrition Symposium (for a higher registration fee). You can register your interest with Jason/ Luise and we will confirm venue details nearer the time.
