PEG Feeding Training


This PEG feeding training course aims to familiarise students with the reason and methods of PEG Feeding (Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy).

This is a vital course for any staff who come into contact regularly with service users who utilise a PEG or an other enteral feeding tubes (NG, JEJ, PEJ etc)

Our PEG feeding training will raise awareness and familiarise staff with the various types of PEG feeding and medication administration techniques including the use of machines, ensuring staff have sufficient knowledge to work safely with them.

Please note: This PEG Feeding training course includes a practical session – we will supply a PEG machine and all associated equipment for staff to use, however if you have a specific machine you require training on you will need to provide access to it for the duration of the training course.

The training was pitched at the right level for our staff and the practical assessments made everyone feel confident in their ability to work around our service users who have a PEG.
