Tackling Malnutrition in Older people Living at Home in Scotland

Raising the Issue of Malnutrition


Our 'Raising the Issue of Malnutrition' training aims to increase practitioners' knowledge and confidence around identifying and supporting older people at home in the community who are at risk, or are suffering from malnutrition. This training incorporates information on:

  • Common signs and symptoms of malnutrition.
  • Guidance around supporting individuals using Food First advice.
  • Utilising simple tools such as armbands to identify at risk individuals.
  • Support in evaluating work/projects around older people and food.

This training is open to Small Ideas, Big Impact grant holders and applicants, NHS, Local Authority, Carers, Volunteers, Voluntary Sector staff and other interested individuals who work to support older people.
