Malnutrition is common among newly admitted patients and poor food intake during admission delays recovery. Current care processes do not identify these patients. A standardized and feasible care pathway is needed. The Integrated Nutrition Pathway for Acute Care (INPAC) is an evidence-informed consensus-based pathway that addresses this need. This presentation will focus on the developmental steps of INPAC, key components of the pathway and next steps for testing its feasibility, resource requirements and patient reported outcomes that result with implementation.
