Canadian Malnutrition Awareness Week™

CMAW 2023 will be held Oct. 2-6, 2023.   

Canadian Malnutrition Awareness Week™ (CMAW) is an educational and promotional campaign presented by the Canadian Malnutrition Task Force (CMTF), a standing committee of the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS). CMTF is the national voice for the prevention, detection, and treatment of malnutrition across Canada.

The aim of CMAW is to enhance learning of clinicians, healthcare providers and consumers around malnutrition by providing knowledge on the latest research and best practices for nutrition care. Through a series of webinars delivered by leading experts and the creation of resources aimed for use across multiple settings, CMAW offers the latest learnings around malnutrition care.  

The theme for Canadian Malnutrition Awareness Week 2023 is “Stronger Together” with a focus on addressing specific team based strategies across various healthcare settings, including pediatrics, primary & community care, long term care and acute care.
