Malnutrition is common in adults admitted to hospital. The Nutrition Care in Canadian Hospitals study identified that one in two patients with a stay of two or more days admitted into 18 academic and community hospitals were malnourished on admission. Malnutrition has significant consequences on quality of life and use of the healthcare system. The More-2-Eat (M2E) implementation project looked at improving nutrition culture in Canadian hospitals and sharing the learning through the INPAC toolkit. Best practices are based on the new Integrated Nutrition Pathway for Acute Care, developed by consensus with Canadian experts and clinicians.

The study was funded by the
