Our research projects focus on the problem of protein-energy malnutrition and its many clinical facets, both within the inpatient and outpatient setting. Malnutrition shows a high prevalence, its etiology is multifactorial and it often occurs in association with other diseases. Malnutrition has a negative impact on clinical outcomes, regardless of the patient population. Recent study results from our research show that malnutrition is a modifiable risk factor and that nutritional therapy has a positive impact on disease progression. Our research group investigates potential modifiable causes of malnutrition and its management. Some of our projects also deal with electronic communication and working tools in clinical nutrition.
