Managing Adult Malnutrition

Up to HLP forum
July 08. 2012

Hi all


Good nutrition is essential for healthy living and I have recently been part of a multidisciplinary team developing a resource on malnutrition so I thought it might  be suitable to include as a resource on the NHS networks site for HLPs.


The resource Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community is endorsed by 10 key organisations including PSNC and RPS and has now been launched as a document and an interactive website.

Details are available at http://www.psnc.org.uk/news.php/1366/new_guidance_to_help_fight_adult_malnutrition_in_the_community. Cross referenced to this guide is a Guidelines in Practice supplement published this month – Malnutrition in the UK: appropriate prescribing of oral nutritional supplements which may also be of interest.


Kind regards
