Competency in Physical Assessment and Diagnosis of Malnutrition Pre-Conference

Make a difference in your patients’ health and your hospital’s bottom line: participate in WAND’s Pre-conference and become competent in diagnosing malnutrition using Nutrition Focused Physical Exam. To assure baseline proficiency, registrants are provided with preparatory materials and required to pass a pre-test on the new malnutrition guidelines prior to participating in the program. The 4-hour pre-conference begins with presentation on inflammation, edema and nutrient deficiencies and instruction on the process of Nutrition Focused Physical Exam.  Participants then begin putting all the parts of the nutrition assessment together (chart review, labs, patient interview, nutrition physical exam, etc) to achieve an accurate diagnosis of malnutrition in four case studies. Ultimately, participants are required to demonstrate accurate nutrition assessment, correctly diagnosing malnutrition on three live models. For those interested in becoming an expert in malnutrition diagnosis and training other dietitians, information will be available at this meeting.
