Enhancing nutrition and hydration

Course description

Hydration and nutrition are key features of almost every national and local health and care campaign. Without adequate intake of fluids and food healthy body function is unattainable at any level, resulting in increased risk of morbidity, hospital admission and mortality.

Older people, some of whom may be living with dementia or other physical and mental health problems, are especially at risk of dehydration and malnutrition. Physiological changes, multi-morbidity and diminishing physical and cognitive abilities all contribute to poor nutrition and hydration.

This short course aims to provide an opportunity to explore the wide-ranging changes in physiological function leading to increased risk of malnutrition and dehydration, responsibilities in screening and assessment for these conditions, together with a practical content exploring ways of supporting people with physical and cognitive problems to eat and drink well.

Learning Outcomes

You will improve your awareness of general nutritional principles and practical tips that can improve well-being by exploring:

  • How dementia and mental health factors can impact on nutritional wellbeing
  • Dehydration and nutritional assessment
  • Consequences of malnutrition and dehydration
  • Practical work: hands-on evaluation of nutritional screening tools and assessments of hydration
  • Common blood tests
  • Case studies to check your learning
  • Ways of embedding nutritional and hydration screening into routine practice to enhance patient care
