Our initial StudyProduct Aims were as follows 1 To determine under what conditions compliance with nutritional goals are not met in severely burned adults, 2 To find strategies to address identified gaps in feeding to incorporate into a checklist with easy clinical utility, and 3 To develop and test a system that incorporates the above strategies. The system will provide points in a checklist for provider attention and decision support guidelines for appropriate changes to meet cumulative and current nutritional goals. In the first year of this award, we have moved forward by collecting data from several hundred severely burned subjects treated in the ICU on nutritional provision from 3 of the 4 centers involved. We have also established the software package upon which the platform will be based. In the coming year, these data will be used to find the gaps in nutritional provision and develop a system to address these through decision support tools
