Risk of Bias Assessment Rating:
Inclusion criteria for types of participants were older adult samples with a mean age of >65 years living independently in the community (including post hospital discharge, outpatients, and medical centres), who were assessed for PEM using a nutrition assessment tool. Participants included in the current study were the general older population living in the community. Results from disease-specific samples will be reported separately. Observational, interventional (baseline or control group only), cross-sectional, retrospective and cohort studies were considered for inclusion.
Exclusion criteria for participants were those assessed as inpatients of acute or sub-acute facilities (excepting observational assessment post-discharge), day hospitals, or were living in residential aged care (including nursing homes). Data where community samples were combined with patients in these settings were also excluded; however, studies which used “nationally representative data” where results were not delineated by setting were also excluded.
What is the criterion (concurrent and predictive) validity and reliability of nutrition assessment tools in making a diagnosis of PEMin the general older adult community?
