Speakers: Nanette Giswold and Kelly Reinprecht

The prevalence of malnutrition among home care clients is well established. As Canadian health care shifts towards the home setting, practices to detect, prevent and treat malnutrition are of increasing importance. Furthermore, there is a need to complement malnutrition initiatives in the hospital setting to ensure continuation of nutrition care for successful discharge. In this Webinar you will hear from Dietitians working in the New Brunswick Extra Mural Program and the Alberta Home Living Program on malnutrition initiatives in Home Care.
