Interactive e-Learning modules on Nutritional Screening using ‘MUST’

Three interactive e-Learning modules are available – one for staff working in hospitals; one for staff working in primary care and another for staff working in care homes.

In partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, BAPEN has developed an interactive e-Learning resource on nutritional screening using ‘MUST’. Designed for health and care staff working in hospitals, primary care and care homes, the three modules explain the causes and consequences of malnutrition, the importance of nutritional screening and how to screen using ‘MUST’.

Each module includes case studies and care plans appropriate for the work place and an online assessment together with the ability to print off certificates of achievement.

Key Features include:

  • Tailored case studies to meet staff needs and place of work
  • Interactive and online
  • Approximately 45 minutes on average to complete
  • End of course assessment and certificate of completion

Undertaking these modules will equip staff to play a key part in improving the nutritional care of their residents/patients/clients as well as ensure compliance with the Care Quality Commission regulations, national nutritional care standards and the NICE Quality Standard for Nutritional Support in Adults.

Are you enquiring as an individual or on behalf of an organisation?

If on behalf of an organisation then you will be pleased to know that all three e-Learning modules are SCORM compliant and can be published to link into the learning management systems used by trusts or organisations to record completion of e-Learning courses. The modules can be customised to include trust or organisational logo, a welcome from a senior manager and links to local care plans if desired. Costs for customisation will depend on the work required.

A standard, non-customised version of the hospital module is available free of charge via the NHS Electronic Staff Record (ESR) which links to the National Learning Management System (NLMS) or via the Department of Health e-lfh platform.
