Social determinants of health are gaining recognition in the health care system as contributors to poor health and outcomes. Food insecurity impacts many of our patients, yet often goes undetected and unrecognized. Registered dietitian nutritionists have an important role to play in identifying food insecurity and helping patients to access vital food resources. This presentation will provide attendees with validated screening tools and methodologies and creative interventions that have been successfully applied throughout Oregon and Washington state. The session will then take a deep dive into a hospital system’s efforts to address food insecurity and malnutrition.
