Highlights from the ICN Malnutrition symposium show how prioritizing nutrition in the hospital and community settings, and implementing cost-effective nutrition interventions, can result in improved patient outcomes and reduced healthcare costs. The symposium was recorded at the 21st International Union of Nutritional Sciences International Congress of Nutrition (IUNS-ICN).
As part of the symposium, Dr Ruiz Morales presented findings from an observational study of malnutrition across four university hospitals in Colombia. These findings have since been published in the official journal of the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism, Clinical Nutrition.
