This workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about different types of tubes (PEG, PEG-J, jejunostomy, NG, Dobhoff, etc.), common issues that patients face, as well as simple solutions to address them. You will also learn how to identify tube-related problems and when to refer patients to the medical team.
