Addressing Malnutrition in COVID-19 Patients – from Hospital to Home

‐ Oct 5, 2021 12:30pm

The ASPEN Malnutrition Committee has identified knowledge gaps pertaining to the continued treatment and care of individuals who suffered from COVID-19 and the long-term effects the virus causes. There is limited research addressing the nutritional, physical and psychological long-term effects COVID-19 has on these patients and family once they are transferred out of the ICU and discharged from the hospital. This webinar aims to provide information pertaining to care and management of malnutrition in patients recovering from COVID-19 as they transition from the ICU to rehabilitation and/or home.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate understanding of Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) in the setting of Covid-19 care and management after the ICU.
  • Describe challenges to meeting the nutritional, physical, and psychological needs of hospitalized patients being treated for COVID-19 as they are transitioned from the ICU to rehabilitation or home.
  • List available resources in the community for individuals who have been treated for COVID-19 and their families which aid in the continued treatment and prevention of malnutrition.
