New Review Article About Malnutrition Screening and Diagnostic Tools

A recent review article in Nutrition in Clinical Practice identified nutrition screening tools and malnutrition diagnosis tools currently used in acute care settings across the US. In “Malnutrition screening and diagnosis tools: Implications for practice,” authors Mary House and Caitlin Gwaltney argue that malnutrition is a burdensome and costly condition that could be better managed and further prevented by consistent and thorough assessments by dietitians. To support this, they present an overview of the most common inpatient nutrition screening tools and malnutrition diagnosis tools for adults that have been validated through widely accepted research as well as practical implications such as weaknesses and specific indications for use.
