BACKGROUND Approximately 20% of older people are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. Even a short hospital stay decreases the ability to cope with the activities of daily living. The aims of this study were to (1) assess the feasibility of recruitment, (2) assess the acceptability of the intervention, and (3) investigate if an individual nutritional intervention could reduce the readmission rate of geriatric patients within 30 days of being discharged to their own homes. METH...

Background null Internationally, older patients (≥65 years) account for more than 40% of acute admissions. Older patients admitted to the emergency department (ED) are frequently malnourished and exposed to inappropriate medication prescribing, due in part to the inaccuracy of creatinine-based equations for estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). The overall aims of this trial are to investigate: (1) the efficacy of a medication review (MED intervention) independent of nutritional status, (...

Low-intake dehydration is a common and often chronic condition in older adults. Adverse health outcomes associated with low-intake dehydration in older adults include poorer cognitive performance, reduced quality of life, worsened course of illness and recovery, and a high number of unplanned hospital admissions and increased mortality. The subjective methods to assess (risk of) dehydration are not reliable, and the evidence about preventive measures are also limited. So is the knowledge about t...

Summary null null Background null Many older hospitalized patients are at nutritional risk or malnourished and the nutritional condition is often further impaired during hospitalization. When discharged to own home, a “Nutrition Gap” often occurs, causing inadequate dietary intake, and potentially impeded recovery. Previously, cross-sectorial studies of single component nutritional intervention have shown a limited effect on clinically relevant outcomes. We hypothesized that a multimodal nutriti...

Summary Background and aim Finding patients at nutrition risk and securing sufficient nutritional intake, is vital to decrease risk of adverse outcomes and all-cause mortality. The aims of this study were therefore to investigate the prevalence of patients being screened for nutrition risk, to determine nutritional coverage in at-risk patients and assess the prevalence of readmissions and mortality within 30 days. Methods A one-day cross-sectional study was performed at Herlev Hospital, Denmark ...

The purpose of this chapter is to share knowledge about terminology and best practice approaches for the nutrition care process, including nutritional screening, assessment, diagnosis, intervention, and monitoring. This will focus on nutrition care for older adults with or at risk of malnutrition, in their own home, hospital, or caring facilities.

The purpose of this chapter is to describe the nutritional recommendations for older adults and change in requirements with age and disease. Key factors influencing nutritional requirements, dietary intake, and nutritional status in old adults will be described, including specific nuances for geriatric and orthogeriatric patients.

The objective of this systematic review is to assess whether old people should be actively involved in activities related to meals to support quality of life, nutritional status and functional abilities related to meals. Two electronic databases Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effectiveness were searched, supported by PubMed citation, snowball searches. Eleven primary studies were included. The quality was low. No studies assessed the effect on...

Introduction Nutritional challenges are common consequences of cancer, and they do not only occur in the hospital setting. They are also frequent after completion of treatment, and nutritional interventions in community-based post-treatment rehabilitation services are important. The first step towards initiating any nutritional intervention is to identify the individual in need hereof, but evidence is limited on the applicability of different nutrition screening and assessment tools in the post-...
