Nutrition and Hydration Champions meeting

The next Nutrition and Hydration Champions meeting is being held on 29th September 2020, from 2-4:30pm. This will be a virtual meeting via Microsoft teams; you will need access to a device with sound (camera optional) and a good connection.

The meeting will be looking at constipation/bowel management in the context of nutrition and hydration – this is topical at the moment especially for staff working with people with learning disabilities (see Dying for a Poo here: https://bowelinterestgroup.co.uk/news/dying-for-a-poo/), but is relevant for everyone working in the care sector.

To book a place email nwccg.careprovidernurses@nhs.net, using 'Nutrition and Hydration Champions' as the subject line.
