Editor(s): M. Elia, B. Bistrian. vol. 12

Malnutrition is an under-recognized problem in hospitalized, home and community patients. It has been identified as an issue for more than 30 years, but has struggled to be recognized as an important issue by healthcare clinicians, administrators and government officials. Recent data show that at least 30% of hospitalized patients are malnourished, with a large majority of the cases unrecognized and untreated. Although awareness of the situation is increasing, there remains a great deal of work that must be done to educate healthcare professionals on the value of nutrition intervention as an integral part of medical therapy. Along with this is the need to educate administrators and regulators of the cost benefits of nutrition care.
