INPAC: INTEGRATED NUTRITION PATHWAY FOR ACUTE CARE

An easy-to-use algorithm to detect, monitor and treat malnutrition in acute care patients, this evidence-based pathway is the result of a consensus from leading Canadian researchers and clinicians.

INPAC is based on the key principle that an integrated approach – or involvement from the whole health care team – is required to treat malnutrition. INPAC is a minimum standard; institutions that provide care beyond this minimum should continue to practice at their higher quality standard.

It is recommended that each hospital establish an interdisciplinary team to promote the nutrition culture change required to implement INPAC.
