Professor Cederholm will present the two consensus efforts ESPEN has performed over the last three years according to (1) diagnostic criteria for malnutrition, which is now published in Clinical Nutrition (Cederholm et al. Diagnostic criteria for malnutrition - An ESPEN consensus statement. Clin Nutr 2015;34:335-40), and (2) a suggestion for aetiology-based malnutrition diagnoses that could be a basis for the revision of ICD-11 that will be presented by WHO in 2018. The latter initiative is in its final stages and not yet published. The most important concepts for this statement are disease-related malnutrition (DRM) and non-disease-related malnutrition. DRM is subdivided into inflammation-driven DRM and non-inflammation-driven DRM, whereas hunger-related malnutrition is the major non-DRM concept. ESPEN looks forward to a constructive conversation in order to reach a global consensus on these crucial topics.
