About

At hospital, short term actions are used (adaptation of meals, oral supplementation…) to fight malnutrition. Oral supplementation can have a positive impact on weight gain. But actions should continue at home, particularly to maintain autonomy for elderly. The hypothesis is that practical workshop about enrichment and interest of foods can help malnourished patients to change their eating habits. The main goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of this workshop on improving nutritional status, measured by Mini Nutritional Assessment

Full description

This is a mono center cohort study of a 4-months follow-up on elderly patients after hospitalization.
