Free content this week aims to support nurses' nutritional practice

  • Comment

Nursing Times is giving FREE access to its online archive and learning to support nurses in nutrition and hydration practice.

For a week from 12 August over 600 relevant articles in our clinical archive will be free to access for registered users of – these are usually only available to Nursing Times subscribers. Users will also have free access to the following Nursing Times Learning online units:

  • Nutrition screening
  • Dysphagia
  • Obesity management in adults
  • Diarrhoea: assessment and management

While subscribers have unlimited access to Nursing Times Learning, most of the 40+ units cost £10 + VAT to non-subscribers.

“Nutrition and hydration are fundamental aspects of patient care,” said Ann Shuttleworth, practice and learning editor. “They make a huge difference to patients’ health and recovery, and the quality of their experience of care. But they also have enormous implications for the health service, influencing length of hospital stays and whether patients need admitting in the first place.

“Nurses have a crucial role in ensuring patients receive adequate nutrition and hydration, but this involves far more than simply ensuring they eat and drink. Our archive has a wealth of double-blind peer reviewed articles that will help nurses to understand this complex area, while our learning units enable them to work through case scenarios, relating their learning to clinical practice.”
