Nourish with Gastrostomy

A percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is used for enteral feeding (tube through the wall of the stomach) for people who cannot eat or drink using their mouth.

Nourish is an online resource that has been designed with parents and advised by clinicians from Perth Children’s Hospital and other clinicians around Australia. It includes videos and Ask and Do sheets.

Learning about gastrostomy usually begins in the clinic with the medical, nursing, and allied health staff. Clinic staff will provide support before the procedure, in hospital and help with solving any problems that might come up once you are at home again.
