PEG Care and Feeding Training 

PEG Care Training 

We offer a number of PEG Care and Feeding courses dependent on the level of training required and the type of staff needing the PEG training.   

PEG (Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy) care refers to the maintenance and care required for a tube placed through the abdominal wall into the stomach . Importantly, proper care is essential to prevent infection, promote healing, and ensure the tube remains patent and functional. Our PEG care courses teach important skills for administering food, water and medication via these tubes as well as this proper care of the tubes.
