BAPEN Trainee Committee was first established in 2013 as part of BAPEN medical. The committee consists of trainees from all levels in medical, surgical and critical care specialties who work together with the aim to raise awareness of BAPEN amongst trainees and develop nutrition training resources for them.
Committee members meet quarterly, mostly virtually, with an annual meeting at the BAPEN conference in November. As a committee we contribute actively to tasks including developing educational toolkits, organisation of training days and BAPEN symposia/conferences. BAPEN trainee committee has its own twitter account where we aim to keep our followers up to date with the latest nutritional guidelines and information about upcoming nutrition courses and conferences. Follow us at @BAPENtrainees!
We share the aims of BAPEN:
- To support the education and training of clinicians at all levels
- To encourage research & development and to foster collaborations between members’ research groups
- To foster inter-disciplinary links and collaboration between medical specialties
- To foster multi-professional links and collaboration between health professionals
