2017 IrSPEN Conference & Policy Seminar
IrSPEN 2017 one day policy seminar and conference event was highly relevant for doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, nurses and policy makers interested in the role of nutrition and metabolism in disease and aging. Combining under-nutrition and obesity under our malnutrition umbrella resulted in record numbers of attendance. We had senior level representation from Dept of Health, HSE, HIQA, FSAI and professional organisations and NGO involved – INDI, RCPI, Safefood, Irish Cancer Society and other patient organisations.
Presentations, debates, and our expert panel focused on latest research around obesity treatments versus prevention, Bariatric surgery in severe obesity, how best to treat intestinal failure, manage patients on HEN support, to name just a few.
We had 53 poster entries accepted and published, final year student prize, poster prizes – IrSPEN and ISG, and outstanding oral presentations
