Abstract

Malnutrition is a world-wide problem that does not only affect developing countries. People in industrialised countries, in particular the elderly, the poor and the sick, are at risk. In Switzerland, it is estimated that between 15 and 20% of patients (depending on patient population) show signs of malnutrition upon hospital admission. In response and based on a systematic review of the literature, a working group of the internal medicine department at the University Hospital Basel has developed a malnutrition programme comprising a screening instrument, a multidisciplinary care guideline, an information brochure, and a training programme for nursing staff. It is the aim of this article to report how the programme to recognise and treat malnutrition was developed, implemented, and evaluated.
