Part A: «Nutritional interventions to combat malnutrition of older adults in the hospital setting»


Summary: The present presentation aims to provide evidence-based recommendations for clinical nutrition in older adults in acute care hospitals. The presentation will answer the following clinical questions: a) how to estimate energy and protein requirements in older inpatients, b) the use of nutritional screening and assessment in acute care, c) the selection of appropriate route of feeding, the use of Oral Nutritional Supplements, the use of disease specific nutritional supplementation, timing and monitoring of nutritional support in malnourished older inpatients and d) the organizational changes in nutritional support provision that may improve outcomes in older inpatients.

Dr Tsagari’s research interests are in the area of malnutrition in the hospital setting, organizational changes in nutritional support and osteoporosis.


Part B: « Nutritional interventions to combat malnutrition of institutionalized older adults''


Summary: Older adults, who have faced nutritional care problems while living in the community, may be malnourished or at risk of malnutrition during their admission to institutions. Due to the lack of tailored food services in these institutions older residents consume inadequate nutrients and have a low quality diet. Thus, the highest rates of malnutrition and/or its risk are reported in nursing and residential homes. In this presentation the need to screen the nutritional status in institutionalized older adults for preventing malnutrition and detecting it early  will be discussed. Additionally, the organizational changes in nutritional support of institutionalized older adults will be addressed, highlighting the need for adoption of specific eating strategies, physical activity programs and systematic monitoring of residents’ food consumption.


About the speaker: Dr Dilek Ongan is an assistant professor and a committee member of  the ESDN for Older Adults. Additionally, she is one of the representatives of the Turkish Dietetic Association for EFAD and ICDA. She has been a lecturer and scientist in the Nutrition and Dietetics Department since 2005 and has studied the nutritional status and the nutritional services for vulnerable groups, such as older adults. Her research focuses on the requirements for improving the quality of nutritional services and gives concrete and evidence-based recommendations to implement a more efficient, tailored nutritional service, especially for institutionalized elderly.
