Industry Sponsorship Opportunities – 2018
Founded in 1992, BAPEN is the leading Charitable Association for malnutrition consisting of a multidisciplinary membership network of Doctors, Nurses, Dietitians, Pharmacists and Patients. As an organisation, we have produced and continue to produce many reports and resources to assist organisations to screen for malnutrition and deliver appropriate nutritional care.
Our current membership extends to over 400; however in 2018 we anticipate membership numbers will rise considerably as we are offering free BAPEN membership to all Core Group Members. This will potentially increase our membership to >1300 members by the end of 2018.
By sponsoring BAPEN you will help to provide essential funds to resource and support the organisation to tackle malnutrition and ensure that excellent nutritional care is provided for all patients in all settings. Through BAPENs work we will actively engage with commissioners, area teams, and key stakeholders to ensure that organisations are focussed on achieving nutritional standards.
We offer three distinct levels of sponsorship for industry partners: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Alongside this we would welcome support for our new ‘Specialist Interest Groups (SIGs) through separate Educational Grants. We have a further tier of membership, for catering companies looking to support BAPEN in 'putting patients at the centre of good nutritional care'.
