Speaker: Heather Keller, RD PhD

For many patients, the transition to home from hospital can lead to increased vulnerability to malnutrition and poor health outcomes. Recent evidence from the Canadian Malnutrition Task Force on weight loss post hospitalization and dietetic care will demonstrate the need for improved practices during this time of vulnerability. Evidence will also be presented on nutrition interventions provided during this transition that support recovery. This webinar will set the stage for the Canadian Malnutrition Week Hospital to Home campaign.
