The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has published a draft report on its systematic review on malnutrition in hospitalized adults. The authors conclude that while evidence shows an association between malnutrition and increased mortality and prolonged length of stay among malnourished patients identified as malnourished, the strength of the association varies depending on patient population and assessment tool used. Therefore, they conclude further research is needed to assess the clinical utility of screening (including a control group) as well as the consistent use of a validated assessment tool. We encourage you to review the findings and consider submitting your comments on the methodology, findings, and utility by the 7/1 deadline.
