Looking back and moving forward; a decade of CMTF

Time: 12:00 - 13:00 EST

Speaker: Heather Keller RD, PhD, FDC

The Canadian Malnutrition Task Force (CMTF) was established in 2009 to address the longstanding problem of hospital malnutrition. Over the past decade, CMTF has conducted rigorous research, worked collaboratively with a variety of stakeholders to improve the practice of nutrition care, and has become the 'go to' source for credible information to support practice change with respect to the prevention, detection, and treatment of malnutrition in Canada. The future is equally bright with new opportunities and spread of the work of CMTF beyond hospital care. This webinar will provide historical overview of CMTF from its inception to the future advocacy work of this standing committee of the Canadian Nutrition Society.
