Title
The Nutrition Care In Canadian Hospitals Study: 2010-2013
Purpose
The Nutrition Care In Canadian Hospitals study, conducted by the Canadian Malnutrition Task Force had the primary purpose of determining the prevalence of malnutrition in Canadian acute care hospitals. Secondary objectives were to determine the independent association of malnutrition with patient centred outcomes (e.g. length of stay) and describe the nutrition care processes for malnourished and well nourished patients.
Details
Data from 18 community and academic hospitals was collected from a convenience sample of 1022 medical or surgical patients. This prospective cohort study followed patients throughout their admission to 30-day post discharge. Measures included nutrition indicators, nutrition care processes and health outcomes.
