Malnutrition in the Older Adult: Identification and Intervention in the Community Setting

Nutrition screening within the community for older adults continues to be a challenge despite tremendous advances through the years. This webinar will address nutrition screening (past, present and future) and will specifically address undernutrition in the aging adult. Available community intervention resources, which target undernutrition in the older adult population, will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe past and present challenges in screening for undernutrition in the community dwelling adult and review how challenges have been addressed over the years
  2. Identify key concepts of a successful nutrition screening process for undernutrition in the aging adult
  3. Discuss strategies to improve nutrition interventions in older adults at nutrition risk in the community setting

Addressing and Standardizing Malnutrition from a Regulatory Perspective

Register Here

As both malnutrition research and information related to malnutrition interventions evolve, it has been proposed that standardization of diagnosing, intervening, and monitoring is feasible and beneficial for patient outcomes. This webinar will discuss the Global Malnutrition Composite Score and what it means for current practice as well as the Canadian Malnutrition Standard in addressing malnutrition utilizing quality measures.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the key components of the Global Malnutrition Composite Score and the impact on hospital malnutrition care performance
  2. Explain how standardized scores can be used to identify gaps in assessing and treating malnutrition in acute care settings for quality improvement
  3. Explain how implementation of standardization in addressing malnutrition may improve patient care and outcomes during hospitalizations and beyond

Faculty and Topics
Understanding the Global Malnutrition Composite Score and its Impact on Hospitals
Mujahed Khan, Senior Manager, Quality Improvement, The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Chicago, IL

Applying Latest Findings from Notable Malnutrition Publications to Practice

Register Here

This webinar will serve as a platform for selected researchers to expound on their notable, cutting-edge publications from 2021-2022 relating to the characteristics and factors of malnutrition with regard to diagnosing and outcomes of malnutrition within the adult and pediatric populations. It will also serve as a method for audience members to correspond with the authors on how these publications may be applicable to their practice.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe differences in length of stay, readmission, and discharge destination between those with and those without malnutrition
  2. Identify factors present upon admission into the Pediatric ICU that are associated with decline in nutrition status and could be used as part of nutrition screening tool
  3. List characteristics that are specific to starvation-related malnutrition, which may differ from inflammation-related malnutrition
  4. Describe how the Global Leadership Initiative on Malnutrition criteria have been utilized in published literature and how reported validation methods compare to published guidance
