Questions on malnutrition diagnostic approaches? Join Ainsley Malone, MS, RD, CNSC, FAND, FASPEN, as she discusses implementation of nutrition assessments to identify patients with malnutrition. 


The impact of malnutrition on health outcomes is significant. It’s therefore imperative, as critical members of the care team, for RDNs to identify those who may be malnourished and begin nutrition intervention as soon as possible.

This joint Today’s Dietitian and Becky Dorner & Associates webinar, will discuss key malnutrition diagnostic approaches and how RDNs can be ready to give their patients the care they need. Join Ainsley Malone, MS, RDN, CNSC, FAND, FASPEN, as she discusses Subjective Global Assessment (SGA), the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics/the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Malnutrition Consensus Characteristics, and the Global Leadership Initiative on Malnutrition (GLIM) Consensus Criteria. Learn how to delineate these approaches for diagnosing patients with malnutrition, understand their characteristics and similarities, and implement new ways you can use them in your specific practice setting.
