The Ageing and Dementia Research Centre has worked in collaboration with Wessex Academic Health Science Network and the Patients Association to develop the Nutrition Wheel.
The Nutrition Wheel is an interactive version of the Patients Association Nutrition Checklist and has been designed to be a conversation starter (it is not a screening or diagnostic tool). This has been created due to the growing need to improve the way that malnutrition is identified and treated to safeguard our present and future population of older people.
For further information about the Nutrition Wheel please visit the Wessex Academic Health Science Network's webpage for the advice sheet, explanatory guide and to order yourself a copy (https://wessexahsn.org.uk/projects/236/nutrition-wheel).
The Nutrition Wheel will be launched nationally by the Malnutrition Task Force in September 2019.
