The American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.), a leading organization for advancing the science and practice of clinical nutrition, has named the week of September 23-27, 2013 “Malnutrition Awareness Week” to help improve understanding of a condition that affects 1 in 3 patients who enter the hospital.

By raising awareness, it is the Society’s hope that clinicians can more effectively diagnose and treat a condition that can increase a patient’s risk of complications such as skin breakdown and infection resulting in longer length of hospital stay and recovery times.

Interested in learning more? Clinician’s can find out how to improve patient’s outcomes by visiting the A.S.P.E.N. website where malnutrition tools and resources are available.
