Malnutrition Webinar (HRET) | Fast Track Healing with Pre-Surgical Nutritional Optimization

October 5, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

Malnutrition is associated with increased rates of infection and length of stay, 50% higher readmissions rates, and slower wound healing with associated cost 300% higher than non-malnourished patients. By targeting surgical patients with a pre-operative nutritional optimization intervention, benefits are experienced for both the patient and at the facility. Nutritional intervention is a low-cost, high-return intervention that has a cross-cutting impact. Join this webinar to learn how a simple nutritional intervention can have an impact on safety for the surgical patient.
