Introduction The death certification system in Taiwan has been computerized since Cancer has been the number one cause of death in Taiwan for decades [ 1 ]. Cancer-associated malnutrition has many consequences, including increased risk of infection, reduced wound healing, reduced muscle function, and poor skin turgor resulting in skin breakdown [ 2 ].

Nutritional support is recommended for malnourished people who are unable to maintain body weight by appetite and food intake often in the decline of a disease. Consequently, tailored strategies to identify patients at nutritional risk are essential to implement nutritional support effectively and to reduce cancer morbidity. Routine screening for malnutrition should be implemented for people in at-risk groups. The risk of malnutrition and its severity in oncology patients are affected by the tumor type, stage of disease, and the antineoplastic therapy applied [ 3 ].

This investigation selected a validated tool that was an easy and simple to screen patients at nutritional risk in oncology, MUST. MUST is a screening tool that has shown its strength for application with adult patients across all healthcare settings including oncology [ 9 ]. MUST is a five-step screening tool to identify patients who are malnourished and at risk of malnutrition or undernutrition.

Some strategies can be adopted to improve the nutritional status of these patients. These strategies include patient nutrition education programs, and the use of oral nutritional supplements, which can significantly impact nutritional status [ 10 ]. The objective of this study is to evaluate if there is a benefit to nutrition education and oral nutritional supplementation on the nutritional status of patients with cancer that are at a high risk of malnutrition.

Methods 2. Subjects This is a chart review retrospective cross-sectional observation study that was approved by the Institutional Review Board with patients and their families signing waivers of informed consent. Patients were routinely screened with MUST. Patients below the age of 18 years or those who did not complete the nutrition education follow-up were excluded.

'Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool' ('MUST') for adults

What do my results mean and what should I do? Your result is LOW risk so it is unlikely that you are at risk of being malnourished at the moment and you should continue eating as you are currently. If in the future you are concerned about loss of appetite then check your weight again. If you have lost more weight, screen yourself again.
