The IrSPEN Board is pleased to announce the IrSPEN2021 Poster Winners. As expected, the standard of poster submissions this year was very high. Our seven winners were selected based on a number of criteria, most important of which is the potential of their research to advance our knowledge and/or practice of nutritional care for patient benefit.

|Ms Richelle Flanagan – The unmet nutritional needs of people living with Parkinson’s Disease
Ms Erin Stella Sullivan – High prevalence of weight loss and abnormal body composition in a large sample of ambulatory Irish cancer patients
Ms Nicola Dervan – A Nutrition-Focused Physical Examination workshop improves skills and knowledge of registered dietitians in the diagnosis of malnutrition
