Malnutrition Matters Education Program for Providers – Adult Slides
It is estimated that 20-50% of hospitalized adult patients in the United States are malnourished.*
The ASPEN Malnutrition Committee has created the Malnutrition Matters Education Programs for Providers to highlight the importance of addressing malnutrition in hospital patients.
Nutrition clinicians should use the slide presentations to educate hospital care providers—Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. They contain important facts and information for diagnosing and documenting malnutrition in adult and pediatric patients.
There are two ready-to-use presentations, one for each population, and they take only 10-15 minutes to present. THIS IS THE ADULT PRESENTATION. Notes are included in the slide presentations and it is recommended that you review the key papers under the references slide to help brief you on the material. These copyright-protected slides are not to be modified but can be included as part of another nutrition support-related presentation.
You will need PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer to run the presentations. You can download the FREE Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer here.
