Workshop for WHO Headquarters Interns

Thursday 27th June, WHO Hearquarters

Geneva, Switzerland


Nutrition continues to be a central health, economic and sustainable development challenge for every region on the planet. If executed thoughtfully, catalysing the efforts, resources and voice of the vast nutrition community, the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025) has the potential to propagate a society-wide movement, leading to national policy change and ultimately to the end of all forms of malnutrition. The Need for Nutrition Education/Innovation Programme (NNEdPro) Global Centre for Nutrition and Health, in collaboration with the WHO Department of Nutrition and Development, is hosting the workshop Bringing Nutrition into Health Systems: From Global Training Architecture to Local Implementation Models.

The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare Brighton, UK

Wednesday 1st May 2019


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
