Malnutrition Awareness Week 2019
Moving Beyond the Malnutrition Diagnosis: A Multi-Disciplinary, Case-Based Approach to Implementing Nutrition Interventions
Date: Thursday, September 26, 2019
Time: 4:00 - 5:30 PM ET
Thursday's webinar will speak directly to implementation of nutrition interventions in a malnourished patient by a multidisciplinary approach.
1. Discuss how nutrition clinicians can start the conversation with the medical team/physician in order to implement nutrition interventions, specifically enteral and parenteral nutrition.
2. Identify key members of a multi-disciplinary team who should be involved during implementation.
3. Debunk the myth that a parenteral nutrition carries more risk than benefit in malnourished patients who are appropriate candidates for parenteral nutrition.
