Results of COPD and Malnutrition Questionnaire

At the ARNS 20th Anniversary Conference last month, delegates were invited to complete a questionnaire on COPD and Malnutrition.  The results of the questionnaire are shown below:

Thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire at the ARNS 2017 Conference in Loughborough.  We had 47 responses in total.

Just over half of respondents (52%) said that they carry out a nutritional assessment at every visit with 42 % only doing assessments if they had concerns.   BMI is still the most common recorded assessment being used by 75% of HCP to assess Nutritional status with 59 % completing a full MUST score.
