Webinar: Key Methodologies in Diagnosing Malnutrition

October 14, 2021

The impact of malnutrition on health outcomes is significant. It's therefore imperative, as critical members of the care team, for RDs to identify those who may be malnourished and begin nutrition intervention as soon as possible.

On Thursday, October 14, 2021, from 2–3:30 pm ET, this joint Today's Dietitian and Becky Dorner & Associates webinar, will discuss key malnutrition diagnostic approaches and how RDs can be at the ready to give their patients the care they need. Join Ainsley Malone, MS, RD, CNSC, FAND, FASPEN, as she discusses Subjective Global Assessment (SGA), the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics/the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Malnutrition Consensus Characteristics, and the Global Leadership Initiative on Malnutrition (GLIM) Consensus Criteria. Learn how to delineate these approaches for diagnosing patients with malnutrition, understand their characteristics and similarities, and implement new ways you can use them in your specific practice setting.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, nutrition professionals will be better able to:

  1. Implement nutrition assessments to identify patients with malnutrition in the hospital and post-acute care settings.
  2. Describe the three key malnutrition diagnostic approaches and highlight their similarities and differences.
  3. Employ best practices for treating malnutrition.
  4. Detail outcome benefits of nutritional interventions in malnourished patients.
