Abstract
A research overview is presented that highlights the growing prevalence of obesity among older persons and the associated risks for medical co-morbidity, healthcare resource use, functional decline and homebound status. Findings reveal that even for obese individuals poor diet quality and micronutrient deficiencies are relatively common concerns. Currently available nutrition risk screening instruments lack validity for overweight / obese older persons. Development and preliminary testing of a new Nutrition Health Outcomes Questionnaire (NHOQ) for this application are presented
