The Malnutrition Action Group a standing committee of BAPEN are dedicating UK MAW 2019 to undertaking a national screening survey across all health and social care settings.
Our aim is to get as many people and organisations in the UK to participate in malnutrition screening during the week.
By screening a large number of people across the UK, we can build a better picture of the scale of the malnutrition problem. We also want to understand the treatment that people are receiving, which will give us an estimation of the use of the various nutrition support options, including dietary options, oral nutritional supplements, tube feeding and parenteral nutrition.
