Diagnostic assessment of protein-energy malnutrition in hospitalized adults
These guidelines on “Diagnostic assessment of protein-energy malnutrition in hospitalized adults” were produced at the request of the Hospital and Care Organisation Directorate (DHOS). They concern hospitalized adults but exclude acute nutritional stress and pregnancy. They do not address the more specific problems of cancer and AIDS patients, those of malnutrition in patients in an Intensive Therapy Unit, or the management of malnourished patients. They are intended for all health professionals in healthcare organisations.
