The intersectional relationship between malnutrition, frailty and sarcopenia in older adults presents unique challenges for healthcare providers. Malnutrition, specifically, is a leading risk factors for disability, morbidity, and mortality in older adults. Despite improvements in screening procedures many older adults at risk for malnutrition are not identified which prevents effective management. Utilizing interdisciplinary approaches towards malnutrition screening is both effective and feasible. Physical therapists can play an important role in both the identification and management of malnutrition in older adults by remaining of common nutritional concerns in older adults and performing routine malnutrition screening.
