Malnutrition Resources Toolkit

January 29, 2021

This toolkit was developed by West Health and the University of North Carolina to support ED staff in screening senior patients for food insecurity. Food insecurity is a key risk factor for malnutrition, a serious concern for older adults. The ED provides a unique opportunity to intervene with an extremely vulnerable segment of our older adult population. Screening patients is a chance to effect real change in the lives of patients. For some patients, this might be the only or best opportunity to be connected with lifechanging resources.
