Description

Vulnerable patient groups are at increased risk of malnutrition. This learning module focuses on the importance of ensuring that the nutritional needs of those in institutional settings, in particular prisons, are met. Offenders often present with a number of health and social factors which can lead to a high risk of malnutrition. The consequences of malnutrition are significant, ranging from delayed recovery to increased mortality. The treatment of malnutrition is discussed in this article from detection through to management and monitoring. Adequate nutrition is a basic human right and those in prison should be provided with healthy food choices to optimise health.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
Identify screening tools that can be used to identify individuals in the prison population who are at risk of malnutrition.
Describe the effects of malnutrition on the physical and mental health of those in prison.
Explain the nutrient and food-based standards for prisons and assess how these standards can be met in an institutional environment.
Examine challenges and constraints in managing malnutrition in prisons.
