Exploring Nutrition Support Practices in Haemodialysis Units
A Nurses Guide to Implementing Best Practice
Objectives of the EDTNA/ERCA
One of the Educational objectives during 2017 of the EDTNA/ERCA is focused on Malnutrition.

Dietary intervention is of high importance for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, both for disease outcome and for prevention and treatment of malnutrition (over- and under-nutrition), which is quite common in renal patients.

The aim of this Project is to reach all renal healthcare professionals caring for Chronic Kidney Disease patients. Offering them the chance to learn from experts about Malnutrition and to increase the awareness of Dietary intervention which is of high importance for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease.
Objectives of the project
Investigate common practices of nutritional screening and support.

The intent is to provide insight and education about Malnutrition and to increase the awareness of Dietary intervention which is of high importance for patients with chronic kidney disease.

Identify educational gaps and need for further provision of knowledge in nutrition for renal nurses.

To be able to early identify and treat malnutrition, a nutritional screening is necessary, followed by a detailed nutritional assessment in order to provide optimal care to individuals with CKD.
