As The MTF and BAPEN’s Malnutrition Awareness Week enters its fifth year, society including the health and social care workforce, is facing some very tough challenges. #UKMAW22 will provide an opportunity to take stock and share learning, challenges, and solutions. 

More than three million people across the UK are either malnourished or at risk of becoming malnourished, and one million will be older people. The impact of Covid19 and its lasting legacy of de-conditioning, difficulties accessing GPs and the NHS, as well as the cost-of-living crisis, means that even more older people will become vulnerable and will be at a greater risk of being malnourished. 

We understand the difficulties that health and social care staff are under at the moment, and that some people, who would like to attend, will be unable to attend. To help, the conference will be recorded and presented in bite-sized sessions that will be be available to download from this website in due course.  

We want to thank all The MTF funding sponsors who have helped to make this key event possible.

There a few presentation slots available - email Lesley Carter 

The first part of the day will be about getting an overview of where older people are now, providing some insights into how older people are coping, how systems are working and how transformation in the new NHS and social care landscape includes older people. 

For example: Caring for a relative or friend, Care Home, Hospital, Domiciliary Care, etc.
