Speaker about a life with PEG tube

Bastian from the blog "Life with PEG" with glasses

About 20 years of living with a PEG tube provide plenty of material for entertaining stories. I will be happy to share these and other interesting facts about the topic of feeding tubes with your interested audience.

In your clinic, at your congress or trade fair, at your self-help group – give your audience exciting insights into life with enteral feeding! Exclusively from the perspective of someone who can report on their own everyday life with it. An absolute added value for any event.

Can be booked for public events as well as for events with a selected (specialist) audience.

Whether live online or in person on site. Whether in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or another country. In general, almost anything is possible (if the travelling costs for my assistant and myself are covered).

Lecture language is either German or English.

Numerous experiences as a speaker (e.g. at REHAB Karlsruhe, REHACARE Düsseldorf or TEDx) guarantee you a high-quality programme item for your event.

I offer the following standard presentations for the various target groups. In addition, individual speeches are of course also possible by arrangement.

Hello, I am your attending patient

Lecture for healthcare professionals

It is often difficult for healthcare professionals to imagine what it actually means for their patients to be artificially fed. With my presentation, I enable them to change sides and experience first-hand what it is like to live with a feeding tube on a daily basis. I also show them what they can do for their patients to make this life situation and the path to it easier.
During the Q&A session that follows, people are welcome to poke (more 😉 ) holes in my belly. Something that is impossible in everyday professional life.

Duration: 30 minutes + 15 minutes Q&A session

Fee: on request

Savouring life to the full, with a feeding tube

Lecture for patients and relatives

When a feeding tube is to be used as a therapeutic aid, this often means a huge change for those affected. In their lives and those of their relatives. Many questions and sometimes fears arise. With my presentation, I give these people an authentic insight into life with PEG. In addition to my own experiences, I will also share some useful tips for all those who already have a feeding tube. Finally, you are welcome twelcome to poke (more 😉 ) holes in my belly in the Q&A session.

Duration: 45 minutes + 15 minutes Q&A session

Fee: on request (for self-help groups, I offer the option of a reduced expense allowance for this online lecture)

As I have many professional commitments, my capacities for lectures on “Life with PEG” are limited. So if you are interested, please contact me early on without obligation!
