Malnutrition increases risk for morbidity and mortality in people of all ages. However, individuals on the ends of the age spectrum, elderly and infants/children, are at particular risk for developing malnutrition and suffering from the consequences of malnutrition. A number of notable efforts have been made within the last decade to improve identification, prevention, and intervention of malnutrition. In this session, you will learn about the Ohio Malnutrition Prevention Commission, set to study and reduce malnutrition in older adults, and see the history and progression of pediatric malnutrition identification and associated outcomes. Both portions of the session will set the stage for taking action in addressing malnutrition both in the general population and hospitalized patients.
