Home not alone : transition from hospital to home nutrition care, what to consider?
AbstractMalnutrition is said to be the “skeleton in the hospital closet”, mainly because it is overlooked undiagnosed, and untreated. This applies to the “home closet” as well, often being forgotten in the discharge planning and transition from hospital to home. Family physicians are well-qualified to provide home health care since this requires continuing and comprehensive management in a family context. It is the family physician that can initiate the decision to transition to home care, and is directly involved in the planning and coordination of the services.
