PEG Feeding Course

BOOK OPEN COURSE

 

Aims

This PEG feeding course aims to familiarise students with the reason and methods of PEG Feeding (Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy). A vital course for any staff who come into contact regularly with service users who utilise a PEG.

Our PEG feeding course 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 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.

From sourcing the training, booking it and the actual training taking place the service provided has been excellent. The trainer was extremely professional and knowledgeable while making the training fun. Everyone who attended the course left feeling confident to carry out PEG feeding. I would highly recommend the course.
