AUSPEN.jpgCongratulations to Professor Simon Lal, who was invited as the keynote international speaker to the annual conference of the Australasian Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, held in Auckland, New Zealand in November.

Professor Lal delivered four plenary talks on Intestinal Failure (IF), covering Advances in IF care, Quality of Life, Crohn's disease and Palliative Parenteral Nutrition.

The vast majority of the data he presented to support his lectures had been derived from research and quality improvement work that he and the team have conducted at the Northern Care Alliance, highlighting that Salford remains a world-leading authority in Intestinal Failure care delivery.

Professor Lal said” It was an honour to speak at AuSPEN and to share our experiences in IF care. We hope to use the conference as a platform to develop long-term collaborations with colleagues from Australia and New Zealand.”


Professor Simon Lal, Clinical Lead of Salford’s Intestinal Failure Unit, was invited as the guest speaker at the inaugural meeting of the Sri Lankan College of Nutrition Physicians in May 2023. He was also awarded a lifetime Fellowship of the College.

Professor Lal has established an annual Clinical Nutrition Training Programme for Sri Lankan Physicians in Salford since 2019 and hopes to continue to build on the Salford-Sri Lankan collaboration in the coming years.
