There is an important link between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and nutritional status, with malnutrition having a profound impact on disease progression and general functioning.

This course explains why patients with COPD may not achieve adequate nutritional intake. Assessing nutritional status, using the ‘MUST’ screening tool enables clinicians to advise on appropriate management. This module will explain the ‘MUST’ tool and discuss the treatment options for malnutrition including food fortification and oral nutritional supplements.

This course was developed in partnership with Nutricia.
