More-2-Eat: Improving nutrition care in hospital by implementing improved practices for detection, treatment and monitoring of malnutrition

Click here to view the slides (no audio). Read more about the project here. Almost half of adult patients admitted to Canadian hospitals, and specifically medical and surgical care, are malnourished. This malnutrition develops in the community as a result of social and disease factors. Malnutrition, regardless of its cause, extends the length of the hospital stay and…

KT2017-01

About the Project Malnutrition in hospital patients is a growing problem, with 20-45% of patients already malnourished at admission. As 70% of malnourished patients are also frail, early detection and treatment of malnutrition is one way to improve the outcomes of frail older adults. To improve the detection and treatment of these conditions, researchers developed…

More-2-Eat: Nutrition care pathway and optimized protein supplementation for malnourished elderly patients

This study demonstrated the importance and impact of investing in food and nutrition care for the recovery of patients. Also, patients can anticipate improved nutrition care in hospitals that implement these best practices. Possible Research Results Anticipated findings: Learnings on how to implement this pathway are diverse and will assist other hospitals in Canada with improving their…

Better tArgetting, Better outcomes for frail ELderly patients (BABEL)

We expect that the alignment of patient wishes with the care that is received will be beneficial to patients, their families and caregivers. This type of intervention has the potential to reduce unnecessary transfers to emergency departments and hospitals, as well as reducing unnecessary procedures. Possible Research Results Anitcipated Findings: We believe that a more standardized approach…

Better tArgetting, Better outcomes for frail ELderly patients (BABEL)

Using a common framework and language, we hope to ensure that high risk elderly persons will be appropriately identified in order that we may offer personalized care plans across home care and long-term care (LTC). Possible Research Results Anticipated findings: We expect to produce evidence to support the development and targeting and design chronic disease management care…

They aim to show not only that older people are perfectly capable of building strength safely, but that they can also prevent...
