Abstract

The introduction of a new method for implementation of nutritional therapy according to ESPEN screening guidelines seems to improve nutritional therapy in hospitals. The method included assessment of quality goals, identification of barriers and individual targeted plans for each department followed by an evaluation process. The model has to be refined further with relevant clinical endpoints.
