Nutrition Screening | Online E-learning

Recognise and treat malnutrition in patients

Malnutrition is a serious condition that can lead to many health problems. This Nutrition Screening e-learning will highlight the importance of the issue, help you recognise the signs of malnutrition in patients, and give simple steps to creating effective action plans.

Whether dietary, or through illness, it is essential that signs of malnutrition are recognised early, and effective treatment is offered.
