The objective of this journal article project was to compare the accuracy and reliability of the Global Leadership Initiation on Malnutrition (GLIM) criteria vs the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics/American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (AND/ASPEN) to diagnose malnutrition in hospitalized patients. As the GLIM criteria are still fairly new, it is important that healthcare professionals and institutions are aware of its functionality. The project also aimed to discuss the feasibility of implementing GLIM criteria and whether such a change is needed. Morbidity, readmission, and mortality rates were also acknowledged. The journal article took into consideration a wide variety of patients across all ages, locations, and conditions to be able to obtain the most accurate data. Two main journal articles were analyzed to fully answers those questions, and the data found was later compared and discussed.
