Nutrition Creating and Applying an Effective and Integrated Policy

From the Obesity crisis and its related epidemic of disease to enabling care in a community setting for citizens living with cancer and various chronic diseases, Nutrition is a critical and key component.

Effective and integrated policy, properly applied, has the ability to impact population health in a dramatically positive fashion. Health Literacy in this area, efficient and regular screening programmes and other cost-effective measures can greatly reduce the pressure upon clinical systems and budgets and enable citizens managing disease to successfully live in the home or community care setting.

This session will examine the impact of nutrition upon the citizen, care systems and care budgets. National advances in policy development and application will be shared along with the impacts of practical application.

Delegates will be able to examine those developments in the context of their own nation, debate the lessons and results and discuss what impacts such advances could have upon population health and care budgets at home.

SYMPOSIUMS/WORKSHOPS :-

  1. Malnutrition (1) – MNI “Disease-related malnutrition costs €billions: our responsibility?”
    Tackling malnutrition and delivering better nutritional care to patients is a shared responsibility: no one can do it alone! It is crucial that all actors involved in public health and healthcare recognize the burden of disease-related malnutrition (DRM) and the solutions available to improve nutritional care.
    During this workshop MNI will introduce the costs related to DRM, as well as the clinical and economic benefits in managing DRM in an integrated way. The panel discussion will feature patient, policy and clinical perspectives, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
  2. Malnutrition (2) - VNFKD
  3. Avoiding malnutrition with fortified catering - The Carezzo concept has been developed in the Cater with Care project in close cooperation with Wageningen University and the leading food Hospital Gelderse Vallei. In 2012-2015 scientific research, product development, test in various target groups and human interventions studies resulted in evidence based significant improvement of protein intake. Hospitals have been the first to adopt the concept as it also takes hold in residential and homecare. The nutritional science and performance of Carezzo Food and Drink is explained.
