This podcast episode was part of a series ANHI created to build awareness for Malnutrition Awareness Week in the United States, Canada and Britain. If you’re unfamiliar, the week is a multi-organizational campaign created by the American Society for Parenteral & Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) and presented in partnership with the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) and the British Association for Parenteral & Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN). Its purpose is to:
- Educate and encourage healthcare professionals to identify and treat malnutrition earlier
- Educate and encourage consumers and patients to discuss their nutrition status with healthcare professionals
- Increase awareness of nutrition’s role in patient recovery
In our first episode of this series, Ainsley Malone, MS, RDN, LD, CNSC, and WellStar Atlanta Medical Center’s now retired Chief Medical Officer, Dr Albert Barrocas, discuss the Malnutrition Quality Improvement Initiative (MQii), and an MQii supplement in the September issue of Journal of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics.
