BAPEN’s ‘Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool’ (‘MUST’) Toolkit has a new resource – the ‘MUST’ App for the iPhone.
With the growth of the use of mobile technology and Apps in particular in healthcare, BAPEN has converted its popular and validated screening tool for identifying malnutrition into an electronic version that can be used across all health and care settings by front line staff.
"An essential piece of software for a great bit of hardware," says Dr Simon Gabe, Treasurer of BAPEN and iPhone advocate!
*Please use your iPhone appropriately and in line with local and professional policies.
“This is a very exciting and innovative development and I would like to thank Marinos Elia and members of BAPEN's MAG (Malnutrition Action Group) for their continued efforts to make 'MUST’ an integral part of all healthcare.”
- Dr Mike Stroud
“The ‘MUST’ App will be invaluable to clinical practitioners with iPhones. It’s straightforward, easy and quick to use. I use it all the time. A great addition to the BAPEN ‘MUST’ Toolkit!”
- Andrea Cartwright, Senior Nutrition Nurse
“The ‘MUST’ App is a welcome addition to the ‘MUST’ Toolkit and whilst I as a dietitian will continue to use the paper version, I know that many colleagues particularly in the community will welcome this new tool.”
- Anne Holdoway, Specialist Dietitian
Here's what the App looks like page by page – the App is simple to follow and simple to use
