Learning from COVID-19: The Value of Nutrition Across the Care Spectrum

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought heightened attention to the role that nutrition plays in the immune response to infection, its link to comorbidities that predispose one to the virus, and in the long road to recovery.

From their unique perspectives, experts from ASPEN, BAPEN and CNS-CMTF will review the impact of COVID-19, the evidence supporting the integral role of nutrition, and provide valuable insights into the challenges that COVID-19 brings to practitioners across the continuum of care.

Strategies and practical solutions to overcome these challenges in intensive care, acute care, primary and long-term care will be discussed. Special considerations for transitions of care between settings will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  1. Become familiar with the evidence on the importance of nutrition impacting patient outcomes.
  2. Understand the challenges faced by those providing nutrition care to those with COVID-19 in different care settings.
  3. Learn about the potential and trialed solutions to overcome challenges around nutrition care which could be applied to other disease states or clinical events.
