Ask About Your Nutrition Posters
It is important for patients, as well as caregivers and families, to be proactive and ask about their nutrition status. ASPEN has created two educational posters to help you recognize the signs of malnutrition, so you can talk to your healthcare provider about treatment. The posters are available in multiple languages.
Each day, approximately 15,000 hospital patients with malnutrition go undiagnosed. Patients with malnutrition have higher hospital costs, longer stays, and increased mortality. Please share these infographics on malnutrition with colleagues, patients and their families.
