ASPEN 2017 Conference: Nutrition for Patient Care—Real World Perspective

This video presentation by Dr. Correia discusses the current state of consensus in nutrition intervention guidelines and protocols, and then highlights institutional success in implementation of a nutrition-focused Quality Improvement Program (QIP). The QIP is associated with improvement of several important clinical outcomes, including a reduction in both length of stay and 30-day readmissions in hospitalized patients. The evidence from real world clinical practice clearly supports nutrition intervention.
