This October, our annual screening survey will be open once again for all health and social care professionals. The screening survey is run by BAPEN and the Malnutrition Action Group (MAG) and aims to gather data from a range of health and social care settings across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
By screening a large number of people across the UK, we can build a better picture of the scale of the malnutrition problem. We also want to understand the treatment that people are receiving, which will give us an estimation of the use of the various nutrition support options, including dietary options, oral nutritional supplements, tube feeding and parenteral nutrition.
The screening survey portal will be open from 1st to 31st October 2021, and can be accessed via https://data.bapen.org.uk/maw/maw-home. It is quick and easy to register.
Thank you for your support – be prepared to get screening!
