MICRA Seminar: Ageing, Nutrition and Health
How should the health community reduce the risks and consequences of malnutrition of the older patient cohort?
Recent years news reports have highlighted a professional and public concern about how the malnutrition of older adults has contributed to poor health outcomes. The speakers will consider; how much we understand about effects of poor nutrition on health and recovery of older patients; what standards should we expect in those who care for vulnerable older adults; and what innovations are there in improving management of malnutrition in the elderly.
