Research and Education

ENASA is invested in highlighting the consequence of disease related malnutrition (DRM) on clinical outcomes and healthcare resource use. SA has a unique situation as its population has a quadruple burden of disease and there is limited data available on the incidence of DRM.

As research is costly, ENASA has joined forces with SASPEN and embarked on a project to start funding research on the incidence of malnutrition in Africa as well as the use of enteral nutrition.

 

DIETITIAN'S WEEK

Dietitians week is an initiative started by the British Dietetic Association (BDA) to highlight the role of Dietitians in the hospital and community. This week usually takes place in June. ENASA, SASPEN, HDIG and ADSA have be involved in Dietitians week since 2016. Each year there is a different theme.
