Malnutrition (under-nutrition) occurs in approximately 30% of hospitalized adults worldwide and results in poor outcomes. However there is no universal method for diagnosing malnutrition. A group of experts created a set of 6 characteristics to identify malnutrition. The goal of this project is to determine whether these characteristics are the best indicators to identify malnutrition or if there are other factors that may better identify malnutrition. ...

Patients who usually gain more fluid than is considered ideal will be recruited for this project. Because all patients gain different amounts to ... Read More

Disease-related malnutrition is common across healthcare settings in the UK and if left untreated, may have severe consequences. One of the strategies commonly used to combat malnutrition is the use of oral nutritional supplements (ONS). However, there is uncertainty about the optimal way of delivering ONS to patients to maximize compliance and nutrient intake. This randomised study will investigate the effect of different modes of delivery (ad libitum ... Read More

In head-neck cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy (RT) malnutrition is associated with impaired quality of life, reduced survival, more frequent treatment interruptions and dose reductions. The international guidelines recommend early nutritional support in the presence of nutritional risk, as it allows preventing or treating malnutrition and improving the clinical outcomes, as well as the tolerability of oncologic treatments. Previous nutritional ... Read More

Protein-calorie malnutrition is a frequent comorbidity in hospitalized patients and there is evidence that the nutritional status may influence the response to drug treatment, mortality, susceptibility to infections, the patient's functional status, duration of hospital stay and, consequently, overall healthcare costs. The causes of malnutrition are manifold. The underlying disease may in fact lead to an increase in the patient's energy needs, whether or not ... Read More
