Put together by the team behind Pulse, with the help of an expert advisory board, Pulse Live is the one-stop shop for GPs.
Join us to take part in a number of key debates, seminars, and workshops addressing the wider issues within healthcare provision, as well as interviews with senior figures from the NHS, Government and other healthcare bodies.
In 2015, the health and social care cost of malnutrition in England was £19.6 billion, with half of this expenditure spent on malnourished elderly patients.7 Nutritional support with energy and protein supplementation can help to prevent or manage malnutrition leading to frailty in elderly patients.6
The cost of appropriately prescribing oral nutritional supplements (ONS) may be offset by the savings associated with improved clinical outcomes.8
Remember, ONS are only cost effective if they are clinically effective. That means prescribing the right product for the right length of time.
Your feedback is important to us. Please help us to continue to improve the Malnutrition & Frailty Hub by sharing your views in our short survey. Thank you!
