Embedding IPE within core curricula remains a significant challenge. This session aims to illustrate what an IPE programme can look like and which tools can be used. 3B - Clinical - Malnutrition and dietary treatment in older adultsWith an ageing population and growing pressures on health and social care systems, there is a need to maintain quality of life and independence in older adults. Good nutrition plays a huge role in maintaining health, prevention of malnutrition and its consequences. Preventing malnutrition, sarcopenia and frailty will ultimately enable older people to remain active and independent in their activities of daily living. Our session will discuss nutritional challenges faced in this population group and strategies to improve nutritional intake and nutritional status. 3C - Public Health - Nutrition: Athlete's AllyThis session will discuss nutrition techniques that will improve the health of sports people and the performance of athletes. 3D - Research - Breaking the boundary of possibilities with E-Health toolsAs more and more professions begin to integrate new technological possibilities into their work, dietitians are not being left behind.
