10 years of raising awareness of disease-related malnutrition

02 September 2022
Volume 27 · Issue 9

This year, the ‘Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community’ team is celebrating its tenth anniversary. Developed as a collaboration by a multi-disciplinary team of nurses, dietitians, GPs and pharmacists, the resource includes a management pathway for identifying and treating malnutrition, along with a pathway for the use of oral nutritional supplements where required.

The driving force behind the development of the ‘Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community’ pathway and resources was fuelled by the desire to transfer knowledge and skills and provide tools and resources to empower members of the healthcare team to look for malnutrition. This pathway is especially for those at risk to enable early action to improve healthcare outcomes and manage costs. It aims to assist non-nutrition experts in the identification, treatment and prevention of disease-related malnutrition in the community and is endorsed by ten professional and patient associations, including the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) and the National Nurses Nutrition Group (NNNG).
