NEW MODULE – "Nutritional Care of Preterm Infants" is available NOW!

Outline:

  • The Importance of Optimal Nutrition for Preterm Infants
  • Nutritional Requirements of the Preterm Infant
  • Nutrition and Feeding Practice in Preterm Infants
  • Case-based Training

The Early Nutrition eAcademy (ENeA) is an e-learning cooperation initiated by the
Early Nutrition Academy (ENA), the Dr. von Hauner Children's Hospital and the Chair
for Medical Education at the University of Munich (LMU).
 
E-learning (or open distance learning, ODL) appears to be of growing importance in medical and lifesciences education nowadays. Due to the high speed of globalisation and increased required flexibility, also in the medical and lifesciences area, innovative ways of education and life long learning are burning issues. Moreover, time, travel and cost constraints make it necessary to have flexible access to education.
 
ENeA's aim is to provide CME accredited e-learning modules on topics in the area of early nutrition by translating latest scientific findings from international research projects such as the European Union funded EARNEST and  Early Nutrition projects, and other co-operating initiatives into practical application. The e-modules are conceptualised for qualification of health care professionals and new investigators throughout the world who aim at fostering their careers and improving health care services. The modules are created and peer-reviewed by leading international experts in the field.
