In recognition of Malnutrition Awareness Week™, the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) and the British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN) are collaborating to share insights, learnings and best practices.

BAPEN’s Malnutrition Action Group’s Journey from a “Perhaps” to a “MUST” for Screening for Malnutrition Risk in the UK
Rebecca Stratton, BSc (Hons), PhD, RD, RNutr, Chair of the Malnutrition Action Group (MAG)
Moderator: Kate Hall, MSc RD, BAPEN Communications Officer​

Questions to be addressed:
  1. What does the AHRQ US malnutrition data really tell us? What advocacy efforts are working to drive change in malnutrition awareness and intervention in the US?
  2. How has ASPEN’s Malnutrition Awareness Week evolved overtime to expand the reach from clinicians (the converted) to other healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, pharmacists), nonprofessional groups and the lay public?
  3. What does BANS mean for patients, clinicians and the healthcare system? How did BANS launch the Intestinal Failure Registry (supported by NHS England) in 2017? How is BAPEN supporting with the development of a network of hospitals in England caring for patients with intestinal failure (HIFNET)?
  4. How has the Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (‘MUST’) been integrated into practice, embedded into systems, and used to create impact in the UK?
This is a free non-CE webinar developed by ASPEN and BAPEN. Space is limited.
