Nutritional screening
This chapter focuses on screening for undernutrition caused by a reduction in body mass as a result of protein and energy deficiency and includes acute or chronic disease‐related undernutrition. A quick and easy screening stage can be used to screen out those in a population who are not at risk of undernutrition so that resources and care can focus on those with or at risk of undernutrition. The intervention required following the screening process is determined by an assessment which enables consideration of the causes and effects of undernutrition and leads to a plan of care, care plan or entry into a care pathway or process. Nutritional screening tools have been widely implemented in many clinical practice areas with the assumption that their use will improve nutritional care as a result of identifying those at risk of undernutrition.

Abstract

This chapter focuses on screening for undernutrition caused by a reduction in body mass as a result of protein and energy deficiency and includes acute or chronic disease‐related undernutrition. A quick and easy screening stage can be used to screen out those in a population who are not at risk of undernutrition so that resources and care can focus on those with or at risk of undernutrition. The intervention required following the screening process is determined by an assessment which enables consideration of the causes and effects of undernutrition and leads to a plan of care, care plan or entry into a care pathway or process. Nutritional screening tools have been widely implemented in many clinical practice areas with the assumption that their use will improve nutritional care as a result of identifying those at risk of undernutrition.
