So what’s it all about?
Nutrition and Hydration Week is all about creating a global movement that reinforces and focusses energy, activity and engagement on nutrition and hydration as important part of quality care, experience and safety improvement in health and social care settings. During Nutrition and Hydration Week we ask everyone - and we really do mean everyone - to pledge their support to raising awareness of the importance of nutrition and hydration as an essential element of care.
What can you do?
The most important thing you can do is to get involved and to make that commitment to make difference to the people in your care. You will find lots of ideas, resources and our newsletters on the Nutrition and Hydration Week website - http://nutritionandhydrationweek.co.uk/
The important thing to remember that this is your week so do what you think is important. Once you have made that commitment make sure your telling everyone that you are supporting Nutrition and Hydration Week and there are lots of ways of doing this…… We love twitter so follow us @NHWeek or join our community on Facebook http://on.fb.me/1tJH8rp
and we will help share your great work. Please tell us what you are doing so that we can help to inspire others. Contact us via the website or firstname.lastname@example.org
PINNT wishes to raise the profile of artificial nutrition in the community setting. It's vital for many of us to receive appropriate nutrition & hydration - we can't consume it in the usual way; we can't opt in and out of diets and fads - we rely on artificial nutrition; via a tube, a catheter or oral nutritional supplements. Life-saving for us; key to raise awareness of how artificial nutrition is important too!
