Manuscript of the Integrated Nutrition Pathway For Acute Care (INPAC)
Malnutrition is commonly underdiagnosed and undertreated in acute care patients. Implementation of care pathways is limited, possibly as a result of the perception that they are not feasible due to resource implications. This pathway (INPAC) was developed from evidence, best practice and expert consensus. It addresses the crisis of malnutrition in Canadian acute care hospitals, while still being feasible for implementation.
