Ten years of tackling malnutrition in the community
This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the launch of the Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community guidance. Since its launch by a multidisciplinary consensus panel in 2012, the Malnutrition Pathway website (www.malnutritionpathway.co.uk) has received nearly a quarter of a million visits and has seen year-on-year growth in visits and downloads, demonstrating the need for guidance to treat the 3 million people in the UK who are at risk of malnutrition, 93% of whom live in the community (Elia and Russell, 2009; Elia, 2015). In the past year alone the Malnutrition Pathway website has been visited by over 30 000 professionals, patients and carers from over 150 countries around the world. More than 60 000 copies of the Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community document (Holdoway et al, 2021) and nearly 16 000 of the corresponding patient leaflets were downloaded in 2021.
