Survey, Nutrition awareness in vulnerable patient

This survey aims to gather insights into nurses' perspectives on nutrition, specifically within the contexts of oncology and care for vulnerable patients. By focusing on key aspects such as the role of nutrition in nursing care, nurse-led nutritional support, and challenges in nursing education, the survey seeks to understand the current landscape and enhance awareness in these critical areas.

This is a survey, not a test. Your answers will help identify the training needs of nurses regarding the nutritional aspect of patients with cancer.  It is important to complete it yourself.  Your answers will remain anonymous.  If you don't know the answer, select "not sure" instead what a guess

The European Specialist Nurses Organisation (ESNO) is conducting a survey to delve into the attitudes and awareness surrounding nutrition for patients in oncology and vulnerable populations, including the elderly. Nutrition is frequently underestimated as a potent therapeutic intervention. Based on the insights gathered, ESNO aims to initiate and develop educational materials. We sincerely appreciate your participation in this brief exploratory survey. Thank you in advance for your valuable input.
