HA: Call for Commentary Authors: Malnutrition Care for Older Adults Across Care Settings

Monday, September 18, 2017 - Sunday, October 15, 2017

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Healthy Aging Dietetic Practice Group (HA DPG) is soliciting authors to create four (4) peer-reviewed articles and up to six (6) commentary essays related to the “National Blueprint: Achieving Quality Malnutrition Care for Older Adults”  . The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and members of its Dietetic Practice Groups actively developed the Blueprint as part of a national collaborative.

Project  goals mirror the Blueprint’s:  Papers must offer practical and applicable strategies for RDNs/DTRs to work collaboratively with clinical or community team members to:
• improve the quality of malnutrition care practices
• improve access to high quality malnutrition care and nutrition services and
• generate clinical research on malnutrition quality of care
• advance public health efforts to improve malnutrition quality of care

Authors will create a commentary article that expresses a vision for the future of providing quality malnutrition for older adults. The purpose is to advance scientific discourse in providing quality malnutrition care for older adults.

Vision-based commentary, also called a perspective article, offers an emerging or unique viewpoint on issues, concepts or current practices. It may be supportive of, or challenge, existing research or policy recommendations.  These articles generally do not present unpublished or original data.
