Care provided by nurses is especially important in the diagnosis, and prevention of malnutrition, in the decreasing hospitalization period, and hospital costs.(9) Therefore the nurses are expected to have adequate information, equipment, and skill in the field of nutrition.(3,10,11)
Duerksen et al.(14) evaluated the knowledge level, and approaches of Canadian nurses concerning nutritional problems of inpatients . In their study, they indicated that nurses failed to evaluate nutritional state of the patients adequately, and effectively which was attributed to inadequate number of auxillary personnel, time restraints, and missing documents .
