The British Dietetic Association is again joining colleagues from the British Association for Parental and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN) and the Malnutrition Task Force (MTF) to raise awareness of the often hidden issue of malnutrition as part of UK Malnutrition Awareness Week 2019 (October 14-20).
In particular we want our members to take part in the 2019 National Screening Survey which is being run during the week. This is an opportunity to gather important information about the rates and prevelance of malnutrition in the UK, to both inform practice and raise awareness. With more evidence, we are better able to influence government and others to take action to tackle malnutrition.
Members can register online and then provide data on their MUST screening throughough the week. There are even prizes on offer for the 'top screeners'.
Members can also download resources from the BAPEN website, including posters and infographics/
