During the fellowship program Anuradha received training about the basic and advances of burns nutrition management, attending twice daily patient rounds with Nutrition fellowship lead and consultant dietician Pratibha Sharma and the unit’s Senior Consultants. She learned about nutrition assessment, calculation of the nutritional requirements of patients of different ages and sizes, and monitoring in different type of burns, along with the co-morbidities of burns, different nutritional formula preparations and counselling the patients to keep up with the planned diet and fluid requirements. Anuradha will complete a case study for major burns with diabetes, which will be presented at the Annual National Conference of Indian Dietetic Association .
Interburns would like to thank Pratibha for her continuing dedication in running the nutrition fellowship programme in Indore. Anyone interested in applying for an international fellowship in burns nutrition should contact the Interburns office (office AT interburns DOT org).
