MUST Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool

The Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) is a tool used to establish nutritional risk. Routine use of this screening tool can  identify patients who are at risk of malnutrition or suffering from malnourishment. Action can then be taken to improve their nutritional status and mitigate poorer health outcomes.

If untreated, malnutrition can lead to poorer health outcomes, increased morbidity, hospital admissions and complications and significantly reduced quality of life.
