Nutrition Awareness course

 

Description

 

This Awareness course is designed to provide candidates in a range of care and health settings with an introduction to Nutrition awareness and how best to enable service users to choose and consume food and drink by mouth.

 

Delegates will understand how to assess the specific nutritional requirements and needs of each patient.

 

Delegates will be able to identify the key minerals and nutrients which patients may require but also learn that the actual support required by the service user will be dependent on their specific individual needs.

 

Candidates will gain an understanding about malnutrition and the implications of malnutrition on the individual's physical, psychosocial and mental health.

 

The course will also provide an understanding of the problems and difficulties associated with the nutritional status of those living in care, and how to meet their nutritional requirements in line with Care Quality Commission requirements.

 

This course is recommended for anyone involved in the preparation and provision of food for those in residential and care homes.

 

Delegates will also learn about the good and bad effects of food on the body and general heath of the client and how to make any appropriate changes to the diet and nutrition according to any illness or condition the client may have.
