The Canadian Malnutrition Task Force and the Canadian Nutrition Society are pleased to host this Canadian Malnutrition Awareness Week webinar. This webinar will be presented in French.


Paule Bernier FDt.P., M.Sc., ASC, Member of CMTF Advisory Committee

Session description: 

This session will review the latest initiatives being undertaken by the Canadian Malnutrition TaskForce and its partners to improve and sustain best nutrition care practices in hospitals. An update on the next steps regarding the pilot of  the Required Organizational Practice by Health Standards Organization (HSO) Malnutrition Prevention, Detection and Treatment Standard will be shared. CMTFs latest national program, Advancing Malnutrition Care (AMC) is designed to provide mentorship to hospital champions across Canada as they implement and sustain best practices from the Integrated Nutrition Pathway for Acute Care (INPAC). This presentation will explain the mentor/champion model, why we chose this approach, how it aligns with the Malnutrition Standard, and ways for interested individual across Canada to get involved. Preliminary key results of a national hospital survey to assess current malnutrition practices will be shared along with plans for training for Subjective Global Assessment.

Learning objectives: 

  1. Describe the next steps for the pilot of the Required Organizational Practices for the Malnutrition Prevention, Detection and Treatment Standard in hospitals.
  2. Understand the mentor-champion model for improving malnutrition care practices across Canada, in line with the Malnutrition Standard.
  3. Reflect on the roles of mentors and hospital champions, as well as opportunities for involvement.
  4. List gaps in current nutrition practices in hospitals that will direct future knowledge mobilization.
