Essential Reading For Student Nurses
Free Nutrition Supplement
Nurses are fundamental in providing nutritional support and information to patients.
Nursing staff are in the front line when it comes to identifying and addressing the nutritional needs of patients. It is the nurse's responsibility to ensure that patients in hospital are adequately fed and provided the correct diet for their condition and to aid optimum recovery. Nurses identifying a patient who is malnourished, or at risk of malnutrition, can initiate an early referral to a dietician, and can reduce morbidity rates. It is vital that nurses keep up to date with evidence-based research and studies to ensure that they provide the relevant care to patients.
