Preventing Malnutrition in Older People in the Community: What Works?

A seminar on preventing malnutrition in older people in the community was held in London on November 28th, organised by the ILC-UK, European Nutrition for Health Alliance (ENHA) and the Royal Institute of Public Health (RIPH).

The objectives of the conference were to raise awareness of the scope for prevention of malnutrition amongst older people in the community; to integrate the theme of preventing malnutrition into UK health policies for older people; to discuss targeted programmes, training and health promotion initiatives; and to exchange best practice examples.

The majority of malnutrition occurs in the community; older people are at particular risk and much of malnutrition is preventable.

The European Nutrition for Health Alliance, BAPEN - British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, and the International Longevity Centre–UK, in conjunction with the All Parliamentary Food and Health Forum, consulted a wide range of stakeholders to produce ‘Malnutrition among Older People in the Community: Policy Recommendations for Change’.

This report is intended as a Call to Action to UK policymakers across health, social and community care.

A reception, hosted by Lord Soley of Hammersmith on behalf of the European Nutrition for Health Alliance, was held at this launch of the final report.
