Calling Enteral Tube Users

Are you a home enteral tube user who would be willing to share your knowledge and experience?
As part of our campaign 'Let's Talk about HAN' we are asking members who have an enteral feeding tube to help support fellow members. Read on to find out more.   
  • Unsure how to tape your NG?
  • Struggling to store all those supplies?
  • Wondering how to accessorise your tube?
  • Wouldn’t it be great if we could all share our ideas?!
PINNT is producing a ‘Practical Top tips for Enteral Tube Users’ guide to help answer questions such as these, to help troubleshoot problems and as a source of ideas for living well with a tube. We also hope this guide will be useful for discussions with health professionals to help them to help you. We know tube users are the experts on their own conditions, and that the best knowledge on managing an enteral tube only comes from really living with one. It’s that knowledge that will make up our ‘Top Tips’ and that’s why we need your help! So if you have your own unique method for unblocking a tube, or a snazzy way of decorating your pump, or ideas relating to any aspect of enteral tube use that’s what we’d like to hear.

Pratical tips only please, nothing clinical.
