The additional costs of disease related malnutrition in hospitalised children

To improve the awareness/attention for DRM in children, the Maastricht University together with the Erasmus University have cooperate in calculate the cost of DRM in children in NL. As this approach helped opening doors on high decision levels within health care organizations as well as on government level for adults, we expect to have the same results with this health economic approach for DRM in children.
