Survey details: Malnutrition Screening Practices

Malnutrition screening for all inpatients has been advocated by nutrition experts and professional societies to allow early treatment and to prevent associated complications. Yet, little is known about how pediatric hospitals currently screen inpatients for nutritional status. We are conducting a brief survey of U.S. pediatric hospitals on their nutrition screening practices. We are hoping for 100% participation of clinical nutrition managers of all pediatric hospitals (including rehab / psychiatric hospitals) and adult hospitals with pediatric units.Clinical nutrition managers who complete the study survey will be entered to win one of six $50 gift cards to All data will be reported in aggregate and individual hospitals will not be identifiable in reports.

Thank you very much for your help!
