Description

Feeding Tube Awareness Week is February 2017

 

Tube feeding makes life possible for many, yet the general public is not likely to associate tube feeding with infants, children, and adults who are busy living their lives. Moreover, they are not likely to think of people who often look healthy as having a need for tube feeding. The Oley Foundation and Feeding Tube Awareness Foundation are partnering to raise awareness of tube feeding through Feeding Tube Awareness Week.

 

Feeding Tube Awareness Week will help:

  • Raise awareness of enteral/tube feeding as a positive and often life-saving medical intervention for those who are unable to eat and drink enough on their own to sustain life and thrive (and in the case of children, grow and develop).

  • Create networking opportunities among tube feeding families and adults. Seeing a relatable story in the media may give them comfort, inspire them to action, and reduce feelings of isolation

  • Break down the social stigma that is currently attached to tube feeding by:

      • Highlighting the positive outcomes associated with tube feeding

      • Giving more information about the reasons people require tube feeding

      • Countering stereotypes and misinformation about tube feeding
