Malnutrition can have a significant burden on patients, carers, families and the entire healthcare system. While dietitians live and breathe nutrition, they can’t be the only healthcare professionals to ‘champion’ nutrition in hospitals and community settings. That’s why the theme of this year’s Malnutrition Week ANZ campaign is: Be a nutrition champion!
Nurses, allied health and food service professionals, can play a key role in championing nutrition and improving the quality of life of the patients they care for. Helping them to upskill in identifying malnutrition risk is invaluable.
With our philosophy of “caring for life”, Fresenius Kabi is committed to putting essential and diverse enteral nutrition solutions in the hands of people who care for patients. The Fresubin range encompasses tube feeds, ONS, pumps and medical devices which supports your patient’s complete nutrition needs.
