Each year 25% to 50% of patients admitted to the hospitals are malnourished in emerging and developed nations. The negative outcomes associated with malnutrition in the hospital are well documented.
By identifying and assessing patients at risk of malnutrition, clinical issues can be addressed early and avoid negative and costly outcomes.
Understanding your prevalence is the first step to achieving improved outcomes related to malnutrition.
This educational webinar will explain what the prevalence malnutrition audit is and why it is the vital next step to any malnutrition program. Learn how you may be able to implement these into your own organization for improved clinical and financial benefits.
