The Canadian Malnutrition Task Force

The Canadian Malnutrition Task Force (CMTF) is a group of clinicians and investigators that are part of the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS). The following is our vision and mission:

Our Vision

As a group dedicated to improving nutrition care across the country, our primary goal is to achieve optimal nutrition for all Canadians, across the continuum of care, through established processes in clinical care.

Our Mission

We aspire to create a knowledge base and close the gaps between research and practice in the prevention, detection and treatment of malnutrition in Canadians through the continuum of care.

What We Do

Our Four-Pronged Approach to Improving Nutrition Care

Knowledge creation to influence best practices through hospital-based research efforts
Aggregation of data on current rate, health impact and causes of malnutrition to support knowledge creation efforts across the continuum of care
Development of best practices in nutrition care, involving key stakeholders, influencers and decision-makers in the process
Sharing research knowledge to effect a culture change in nutrition care

We are currently creating knowledge through our Nutrition in Canadian Hospitals Study. With our stakeholders and Partners Against Malnutrition/ Partenaires Contre la Malnutrition we are aggregating data, developing best practices and changing the culture of nutrition care in hospitals, long term care homes and the community.
