    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    This chapter begins with defining malnutrition in older people and aims to recognise tools and resources to promote early identification and treatment of those at risk of malnutrition, to minimise the impact of malnutrition on health outcomes. The chapter will provide an outline of the key factors that contribute to malnutrition in older people, an overview of the current status of malnutrition in the UK, and an evidence-based practical approach to preventing and treating malnutrition in older people, including the promotion of eating well for ageing to prevent malnutrition and optimise nutritional status.
