Standard: $39.00
Members: $19.00


This year’s Malnutrition Awareness Week will be focused on the nutrition screening process and diagnosing malnutrition within specialty populations. The programs will also address continued treatment of malnourished individuals after discharge. This webinar will address the misunderstanding of how an obese patient can be malnourished despite not presenting as the stereotypical cachectic malnourished individual. It will also detail the process of assessment and diagnosing of malnutrition in this population.


  • Explain how an obese patient can still be malnourished
  • Provide examples of challenges or obstacles in identifying malnutrition in obese patients
  • Define how the nutrition assessment may be different for obese patients, including the assessment process.
  • List components of the NFPE which are more or less specific to the obese patient


  • Stephanie Cutrell, MS, RDN, LDN, CNSC, Nutrition Support Dietitian, Pharmacy, Vidant Medical Center, Winterville, NC


  • Anna Burrowes, RD, Master's Candidate, Registered Dietitian, Nutritional Services, Mather Hospital at Northwell Health, Medford, NY
  • Sara Perdue, MS, RDN, CSG, LD, Clinical Nutrition Manager, Nutrition & Food Services, Oklahoma City VA Health Care System, Edmond, OK

Is there some lag time from the end of the webinar before we can evaluate and print our CE transcript?

I thought the beginning of the program was too basic.
