BAPEN work closely with a number of other organisations to tackle malnutrition and ensure excellent nutritional care for all patients in all settings.
The BDA is a trade union and professional body representing the professional, educational, public and workplace interests of Dietitians in the UK. The Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Group (PENG) is a specialist group of the BDA and a core group of BAPEN.
Our organisations signed a memorandum of understanding in 2017 which was renewed in Dec 2020 committing to strengthened collaboration on issues related to malnutrition and good nutritional care.
The BSG is an Associate Organisation of BAPEN and is focused on the promotion of gastroenterology within the United Kingdom.
The Malnutrition Task Force raises awareness and provides information and practical guidance for everyone to help combat preventable undernutrition and dehydration in later life. The Malnutrition Task Force believes that good nutrition and hydration are fundamental to delivering dignified care and enabling older people to live fulfilling and independent lives.
In 2018, we co-founded UK Malnutrition Awareness Week with the Malnutrition Task Force, and have worked on this campaign in partnership each year since.
The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people living with or affected by MND.
Our organisations signed a memorandum of understanding in 2019. BAPEN have endorsed the MNDA Transforming MND Care audit tool and we will be working together to better understand and improve the patient experience of nutritional interventions.
