MUST Scoring

Ashfield Services
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

What's covered on the day?

This course is designed for delegates who have involvement in assessing people’s nutritional state and use the Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool as a risk assessment to highlight their potential clinical needs. The MUST Tool is widely used across a number of health and social care settings, but like any other risk assessment tool can be subject to interpretation or error from the practitioner, this course will look at how to use MUST correctly along with any potential pitfalls that have been experienced in practice.


This half day course will contain group activities, tutor led discussions and completion of knowledge tests and will be summative assessed by on-going assessment methods.
