NNEdPro NEPHelP Workshop at the International Forum on Quality & Safety in Healthcare -

‘Food, fluid and nutritional care as key drivers to improve healthcare outcomes: The Nutrition Education policy for Healthcare Practice Training Package’


Wednesday 27th March 2019, 09:00am – 12:30pm

Glasgow SEC, Scotland


We face a complex healthcare challenge from under-nutrition, over-nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies alongside inadequate hydration. Individuals experience one or more of these problems during their life course and these can complicate illnesses, lengthen hospital stay and worsen clinical outcomes. We seek to create awareness around

nutrition screening and assessment for rapid management of malnutrition in healthcare.


After this session, participants will be able to:

1. Define and classify the main nutritional problems facing patients

2. Use simple, rapid and effective screening tools to detect clinical malnutrition

3. Understand pathways linking screening, assessment, diagnosis and management across both primary and secondary care
