Based on their research, Professor Jane Murphy, Dr Joanne Holmes and the team at the ADRC have developed a toolkit to provide freely available materials (resource, learning portfolio, care staff guide and video) to deliver person-centred nutritional care in the area of dementia.

The toolkit has been used all over the UK and overseas, as far afield as Israel and Australia and is the winner of the 2019 CN Award for Nutrition Resource of the Year.

Managing malnutrition and caring for older people in the community guidebookManaging Malnutrition and Caring for Older People in the Community Workbook and Videos

This workbook has been published as part of a research project called INSCCOPe (Implementing Nutritional Screening in Community Care for Older People). This project looked at the effectiveness, barriers and enablers to implementing a new procedure for screening and care for older people by integrated community teams (ICTs) within Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust. The new procedure was implemented by ICTs in Andover, Winchester and Basingstoke. The workbook is available to download here.

There are also two videos to watch which show the highlights from the INSCCOPe research project, led by Bournemouth University working in partnership with Wessex AHSN and Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust.
