Addressing and Standardizing Malnutrition from a Regulatory Perspective

‐ Sep 21, 2022 12:00pm

As both malnutrition research and information related to malnutrition interventions evolve, it has been proposed that standardization of diagnosing, intervening, and monitoring is feasible and beneficial for patient outcomes. This webinar will discuss the Global Malnutrition Composite Score and what it means for current practice as well as the Canadian Malnutrition Standard in addressing malnutrition utilizing quality measures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the key components of the Global Malnutrition Composite Score and the impact on hospital malnutrition care performance
  • Explain how standardized scores can be used to identify gaps in assessing and treating malnutrition in acute care settings for quality improvement
  • Explain how implementation of standardization in addressing malnutrition may improve patient care and outcomes during hospitalizations and beyond
