Overview: A.S.P.E.N. will be hosting the fourth annual Malnutrition Awareness Week™ this year. In 2009, A.S.P.E.N. recognized a need for greater awareness of malnutrition, which is common in hospitalized patients in the United States and is associated with unfavorable outcomes including higher infection rates, poor wound healing, longer lengths of stay, and higher frequency of readmission. Not unexpectedly, these outcomes are associated with increased costs. In some studies, 30-50% of patients become malnourished, often during a hospital stay. This week is always packed full of educational programming and resource dissemination to help clinicians and the general public understand this often poorly diagnosed condition.
