Malnutrition is a common and costly problem, identification and appropriate management is key and has significant clinical and economic benefits. NICE recommends screening for malnutrition with a tool such as the Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (‘MUST’). MUST is a five-step screening tool which includes step 1 (BMI score); step 2 (unplanned weight loss score); step 3 (acute disease effect score); step 4 (overall risk of malnutrition); step 5 (management).
The Malnutrition Action Group (MAG) of BAPEN (www.bapen.org.uk) have a vision for ‘MUST’ to be incorporated into GP systems, simplifying the identification and management of malnutrition. MAG are keen to gain some insights... so please complete this survey by May 14th and share with anyone else who would also be appropriate to complete the survey.
