Assessing Nutrition in Older Adults

Due to any number of physical, social, medical or environmental factors, older adults are often at risk for poor nutrition.  Developed to assess nutritional status in older adults, the two-part Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA) is a valuable resource to identify older adults that are at risk for malnutrition.  This DVD demonstrates the assessment process, as well as, how to measure arm and leg circumferences, and compute body mass index.   The DVD also documents specific risk factors for older adults, and offers an accurate, age-appropriate assessment that care providers can use to develop an effective nutritional plan for the patient.  (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
