INFOGRAPHIC: Better Integration of Malnutrition Care into Care Transitions is Necessary

Publish Date: 27 July 2018
Author(s): Convened by Avalere, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the Defeat Malnutrition Today coalition, supported by Abbott.


Although malnutrition can increase the risk of chronic disease, frailty, and disability—as well as increase healthcare costs—patients’ nutrition status is often not addressed as they transition across care settings. See this infographic from "Dialogue Proceedings: Advancing Patient-Centered Malnutrition Care Transitions," to find out why these transitions are so important and what can be done.

Support for the Dialogue was provided by Abbott.

The infographic presents data on:
  • Nutrition health in the US population
  • The existing patient care transitions pathway
  • Recommendations to integrate malnutrition care into care transitions
  • Recommendations to advance malnutrition care as patients transition across care settings
