Malnutrition Training – Join the #EWAWChat on Wed 25th Nov

Join us on Twitter on Wed 25th Nov as we discuss the topic of malnutrition training and how we can help support older people to eat well, age well & live well.

Whether you work with older people, volunteer or are a carer we would love to hear your views and/or experiences on why training on the issue of malnutrition is important. You might have attended one of our Raising the Issue of Malnutrition training sessions in the past and want to share your thoughts & experience. Maybe you’d like to see mandatory training being put into action, or have some suggestions about how training can be more accessible to more people. We hope you can get involved in the chat!
