Description
This webinar will provide an overview of the Nutrition Focused Physical Exam (NFPE) for both the adult and pediatric patient populations.  The speakers will discuss characteristics of malnutrition such as muscle wasting, fat loss, edema and micronutrient abnormalities and how to identify them.  They will provide examples of how they have incorporated NFPE into their current practice and how they have overcome the barriers to get to this point.  They will examine case studies to put the entire NFPE to use and review coding for malnutrition.
