Managing Enteral Feeding With NDIS Support Services

What is enteral feeding?

Enteral feeding refers to the administration of a nutritionally complete liquid directly into the gastrointestinal tract (mouth, oesophagus, stomach, and intestines), typically via a tube.

Enteral feeding is necessary when a person cannot consume enough food to maintain their health, either because they lack an appetite or because something is preventing them from eating (such as injury, illness, or disability).

There are various types of enteral feeding for multiple purposes. A physician will determine the type of enteral feeding and the nutrition formula to be administered. Some individuals require short-term enteral nutrition to recover from an injury or illness. Others, including people with severe physical impairments, need enteral nutrition for long-term sustenance.

The NDIS and enteral feeding

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding for a variety of disability-related health services pertinent to enteral feeding and tube management. This includes funds for developing and implementing a nutrition plan, training support staff in accordance with practise guidelines, mealtime support, and financing for the equipment necessary to continue enteral feeding and management at home.
