MALNUTRITION CARE NEEDS TO BE INTEGRATED INTO CARE TRANSITIONS
Malnutrition is pervasive, but often under-diagnosed, a condition in the United States. This prevalence is exacerbated among those with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and gastrointestinal, pulmonary, heart, and chronic kidney disease and their treatments can result in changes in nutrient intake and ability to use nutrients, which can lead to malnutrition, according to a new infographic by Defeat Malnutrition Today, a coalition of over 75 organizations and stakeholders working to defeat older adult malnutrition. The infographic provides details on malnutrition prevalence across care settings, existing patient care transitions pathways and recommendations to integrate malnutrition care into care transitions.
