Today is #nutritionDay 2021

BSNA supports #nutritionDay in combating malnutrition, increasing screening of malnutrition on admission to hospital, along with regular review of patients, ensuring every patient is supported with optimal nutrition, whether in the form of food, medical foods or parenteral nutrition.

nutritionDay is a worldwide initiative to fight malnutrition in healthcare institutions. The aim of nutritionDay is to improve knowledge and awareness of malnutrition in healthcare settings to enhance the overall quality of nutritional care.

Each year nutritionDay conducts a one-day cross sectional audit by asking staff and patients/residents to complete questionnaires about individual nutritional care and the actual nutritional status of patients/residents.
