Special Issue "Impact of Malnutrition upon Healthcare and Clinical Outcomes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (26 February 2021).
Interests: geriatric nutrition; sarcopenia; frailty; dysphagia; aspiration pneumonia
There has been growing interest in malnutrition, including undernutrition and obesity, as a potential target for disease treatment and prevention. Numerous studies have shown associations between malnutrition and health outcomes. Malnutrition is caused by various factors such as loss of appetite and nutritional intake, swallowing difficulties, aging, inactivity, acute inflammatory diseases, chronic inflammatory diseases, endocrine diseases, and even hospitalization. Given that global criteria to diagnose malnutrition and malnutrition-related conditions such as frailty, sarcopenia, and cachexia have been proposed lately, research on malnutrition in every setting would be accelerated.
The aim of this Special Issue is to update knowledge on malnutrition related to healthcare and clinical outcomes. Original research conducted in communities, care facilities, clinics, and hospitals and systematic/narrative review articles are invited. The Special Issue will focus on adult and geriatric nutrition. Investigations on the importance of nutrition support teams, nutritional screening/assessment, food fortification, artificial nutrition, hand feeding, and texture-modified diets are welcome.
