Hello,
An ex colleague of mine at the LSHTM is looking for contacts working on nutritional support for survivors of violence (related to trauma and healing).
Any lead is welcome!
Thanks

Hi Severine,

I've worked in the hospital setting in Ireland and have just finished in LSHTM. Trauma, and burns patients in particular have excessively high energy and protein requirements. We used equations to calculate their requirements for each of these, depending on the type and severity of the trauma. There's also some evidence that enteral supplementation of glutamine (if available) demonstrates good outcomes in burn and trauma patients however it's use is more conflicting in critically ill patients.

Happy to provide further information if this is the type of information your colleague is looking for. I'm not working in this area specifically but could perhaps help guide in the right direction.

Ciara
