Speakers: Marilee Stickles-White and Amber Merrell

As our Canadian healthcare system focuses on transitioning patients from hospital to home, the dietitian's role in continuing care for malnourished patients will be even more important. In this presentation you will learn how two organizations are working together with community partners to tackle malnutrition across the continuum of care. We will hear from one of the hospitals involved in the More2Eat study and another with perspective on continuing nutrition care in the rural setting. The session will focus on their experiences of creating new processes, resources and building links with their communities as malnourished patients return home.
