Managing Malnutrition in COPD Guide Available


Malnutrition is a very common finding in patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). In response to this challenge, Managing Malnutrition in COPD has recently been published in the United Kingdom. The manual is intended to serve as “a practical guide to support healthcare professionals in the nutritional management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease including the identification and management of malnutrition.” The guide was written by a multi-professional panel with expertise in malnutrition and COPD, and is based on “clinical evidence, clinical experience and accepted best practice”. The guide has been endorsed by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).Click on this link to see the complete manual: Managing Malnutrition in COPD
