Malnutrition resources added to React To website
React To Malnutrition and Dehydration resources have just been added to the React To website https://www.reactto.co.uk/resources/malnutrition-and-dehydration/
These React To resources were written by Doncaster and Bassetlaw Dietetic Team and are designed to assist in the identification and on going management of malnutrition and ensuring good hydration in all residents. The consequences of not providing sufficient food or fluid are serious, including fragile skin, increased risk of infections and acute kidney injury.
The React To Malnutrition film considers the reasons for food refusal and then takes you through how to use the MUST screening tool, leading to nutrition care plans, food and fluid charts and some menu and recipe ideas.
The React To Dehydration film explores signs of dehydration, fluid charts, drinking behaviour, tips for encouraging water consumption and ideas for hydration based activities.
