Health & Nutrition
Learners will need to complete our training skills for trainers day before they attend any of our Train the Trainer course days. Please note that this is only compulsory if you have never attended one of our Train the Trainer course days before. You do not need to complete our training skills day if you have already attended.
When working in the adult health and social care sector you may be responsible for ensuring those we care for receive appropriate fluids and nutrition. This course will help improve your knowledge on good nutrition and wellbeing whilst recognising facing challenges you may come across.
During the session, you'll cover:
An introduction to Healthy Eating Nutrients and their benefits
The factors that affect and influence our nutritional habits
An evaluation of malnutrition - what it is and how it affects the body and mind
An introduction to the ‘MUST’ Screening Tool and how to use it
The effects of dehydration - how to identify and treat it
How to promote good Health and Nutrition in the workplace.
This full or half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates). You’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment after you take the course. You will receive a certificate once you have passed the assessment.
