Special Issue "Nutrition and Rehabilitation in Older Patients with Disability"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Interests: Rehabilitation Medicine; Dysphagia; Clinical Nutrition; Aspiration Pneumonia; Health Service Research
The prevalence of malnutrition in older patients who undergo rehabilitation is high. Malnutrition is associated with impairment, disability, and handicap. The major causes of disability in rehabilitation facility inpatients are often complicated by malnutrition.
A combination of both rehabilitation and nutritional management is important in older patients with disabilities. Rehabilitation and nutritional care improve physical function, activities of daily living, and quality of life. There has been growing interest in associations between nutrition and rehabilitation.
The aim of this Special Issue is to update knowledge on nutritional management and rehabilitation in older patients with disabilities. We invite the submission of clinical research, epidemiological research, and up-to-date reviews (scoping and systematic reviews, as well as meta-analyses).
