Home tube feeding challenges

I find it easiest to write from "I'm in the midst of it right now" experience so that's what I'm going to do today. As I mentioned, I have an intern with me this week and I've given her the challenge of simplifying our home tube feeding handouts for clients who either do not speak/understand English or have low literacy skills.

I hop to share our finished handouts on this blog, but in the meantime, here is the link to the home tube feeding resource we are using. From it we are selecting the most important information, simplifying the wording, and using pictures instead of words where possible.
