The Public Review of the Health Standards Survey - Malnutrition Prevention, Detection and Treatment Standard has been launched.
The aim of this survey is to increase awareness of this standard and encourage multidisciplinary feedback on it. The Canadian Malnutrition Task Force (CMTF) Advisory Committee initiated work on the Malnutrition Prevention, Detection and Treatment Standard with Health Standards Organization (HSO). Development of this standard has included international expertise, and the content is applicable to both adult and pediatric populations. After this standard is finalized, Accreditation Canada will review and decide whether it will become a Required Organizational Practice (ROP) and it may apply to Emergency, Critical Care, Perioperative/Surgery, and Inpatient Services within acute care.
