The Hospifar Group, together with the German multinational Fresenius Kabi, developed the first cycle of workshops on nutritional therapy for critically ill patients, an event that is being held for the first time in the country.
The three-month event, called “Dominican Nutritional Therapy Course (TND)”, addresses the following approaches: critical patient, cancer and surgical patient, taught by the Colombian doctors Juan Carlos Ayala Acosta, specialist in General Surgery and Laparoscopy, with a Ph in Biological Sciences; and the well known clinical epidemiologist, nutritionist, professor and Dietician, Carolina Méndez Martínez.
The cycle of workshops includes six conferences that address clinical nutrition as a central axis in critical patients from a scientific approach.
The Dominican Republic is the second country in the region to develop this workshop, the first being Colombia.
For the president CEO of the Hospifar Group, Mr. Rafael Perez Barroso, he was delighted to be the first to obtain this type of medical training at the highest level in the country, especially from the hand of Fresnius Kabi.
