Hi DNS Members,
I am getting set to travel to Philadelphia for the FNCE House of Delegates Meeting and I want to make sure I have all your ideas with me. In addition to the Mega Issue on Public Health Nutrition that I told you about a few weeks ago - see attachments to that news item on Page 2 of the DNS News - we will be reviewing the 2012 Visioning Report entitled, "Moving Forward - A Vision for the Continuum of Dietetics Education, Credentialing and Practice."
I encourage you to review this document (attached below) and send me your thoughts either via this website or my email address: email@example.com
It's an honor and privilege to represent you and DNS!

Best Timing for Energy Provision in Critical Illness- Summary of TICACOS trial and EPaNIC trial, PLUS new research yet to be published
This is a review providing a concise summary of recent large studies addressing the timing and provision of nutrition support therapy in the critically ill patient. Dr. Beger also has undertaken her own research, which currently is in publication. This review highlights some of their findings, most notably "Isoenergetic feeding improved outcome, with a significant reduction in new infections, an increase in antibiotic free days, and reduced time on mechanical ventilation." We look forward to the publication of this new research.
