Tools to assess the nutritional status of acutely ill older adults.
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2006

Nurses are responsible for identifying patients who are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition. They are also expected to follow-up patients' nutritional status and to initiate preventive and caring interventions. The aim of this Swedish study was to explore whether simple assessment tools used during hospital admission could identify older adults at risk of malnutrition.
