Malnutrition is a
common, but under-recognized problem in older adults that can lead to loss of
function, increased morbidity, and death and put organizations at risk.
Screening to accurately identify who is at risk is the first line of defense
and leads to intervention. This webinar will discuss the problem of
malnutrition in older adults, examine how using a validated screening tool
protects the patient and the caregiver, and look at available validated
screening tools used with this vulnerable population, including the MNA® and
the new Self MNA®. Finally, we will showcase some of the organizations
and programs that have successfully implemented the MNA® in practice – best
practices that can be duplicated in your setting.
