Foreword

Hospital malnutrition and caloric deficit is a widespread health problem of major concern impacting patients all over the world.

Malnutrition has significant negative impact on physical health as well as recovery from illness and surgery. In addition it increases the use of health care resources and treatment costs. This is especially true for the high risk surgical patients.

To overcome hospital malnutrition in countries around the world, Fresenius Kabi established in 2015 the initiative “United for clinical nutrition”. The multinational initiative seeks to reduce the prevalence of this condition through education, data collection, and clinical assessment in key geographical regions.

In 2018 the commitment will be continued in Asia with a special focus on surgical patients.

One important milestone of the initiative is the “Nutrition Insights Day”. This study aims to obtain detailed insights into the current nutritional practice in surgical patients and to provide support in order to meet individual patient needs.

It will take place in seven countries across Asia: India, Indonesia, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
