Abstract / Description

Malnutrition is common in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and is associated with poor health outcomes. Despite this, screening for malnutrition in the outpatient‐setting is not routine and research in the area is limited. The present study aimed to evaluate whether agreement between malnutrition screening completed by patients and healthcare professionals (HCPs) could be achieved by comparing patient self‐administered ‘MUST’ (‘MUST’‐P) with HCP administered ‘MUST’ (‘MUST’‐HCP) in a single tertiary IBD outpatient clinic.
