"Food Is Medicine" is more than just a slogan.

A key mission of CMTF is to advocate for implementing strategies to prevent, detect and treat malnutrition. This includes developing knowledge translation materials that aim to educate, raise awareness and engage healthcare providers, the public (including patients and their families) and policy makers in promoting and taking appropriate action. 

CMTF has developed several posters, infographics and videos designed to help Healthcare Professionals and the Public - including patients and families, advocate for nutrition. Opportunities for hospitals to host Grand Rounds on Malnutrition and for health care professionals and patients to share their experiences with food and nutrition in hospital, have also been created.

Through a joint collaboration between CMTF and Health Standards Organization, a Malnutrition Prevention, Detection and Treatment Standard 2021 has been developed. This national Standard will be the foundation on which hospital accreditation programs and public policy are built.
