Malnutrition prevalence in aged care residents: A pilot study
Kellett, Jane, Kyle, Greg J., Itsiopoulos, Catherine, Naunton, Mark, & Bacon, Rachel (2015) Malnutrition prevalence in aged care residents: A pilot study. Topics in Clinical Nutrition, 30(3), pp. 276-280.
Malnutrition is a significant clinical and public health problem. The prevalence of malnutrition was determined in a sample of older people living in 2 residential aged care facilities in Australia. The Subjective Global Assessment tool was used to determine the prevalence of malnutrition in 57 residents. The majority of residents were well nourished (67), 26 moderately malnourished, and 7 severely malnourished. Prevalence of malnutrition was higher for those receiving high-level care (42), but this was not statistically significant (P =.437). No relationship was found between malnutrition status and age (P =.529) or sex (P =.839).
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
