Nutrition in Wound Healing

Resource to help raise awareness of the role of nutrition in wound healing

Multidisciplinary Team Approach

As with patient care in general, nutritional care and assessment requires a multidisciplinary team approach. Nurses tend to be in a role that provides them with ideal opportunities to provide basic care and advice, and identify those at risk of malnutrition, however specialist services are also required.

Social services, medical staff, and dieticians may all have specialist care to provide to the individual with malnutrition.

Consider what you may ask them to do for a malnourished patient, and then select the sub-headings to see what their roles may be.
