Passport to health- Nutritional self-assessment; Empowerment of the patient and primary care health professionals (Poland)

To celebrate the Grant’s 15th anniversary, the 2023 MNI Grant was awarded to two outstanding projects, the 1st one from Poland

‘Passport to health. Nutritional self-assessment. Empowerment of the patient and primary care health professionals.’ submitted by Polish Society for Parenteral, Enteral Nutrition and Metabolism (POLSPEN).

The aim of the project is to create an ‘airport-like’ check-in for patients seeing a physician with an online tool for self-assessment of nutritional status. A “nutrition passport” will be generated on the website with the screening result and a QR code with a link to the knowledge base for the patient and physician. Online activities in the knowledge base will be associated with the screening record. Patients and physicians will be surveyed about the knowledge gained and the treatment initiated.
The goal is to promote early nutrition screening and intervention. The strategy is to develop a patient-centered educational model supported by a simple online self-assessment tool. A web knowledge base with basic information and algorithms will be also addressed for primary care health professionals.

The award was consigned by MNI President, Angelika Müller, to Prof. Marcin Folwarski, Medical University of Gdansk, and Dr. Varma Shilpa, Fortis Hospital, Noida/Mumbai during the MNI Grant Ceremony held during the ESPEN congress on 13 September 2023 in Lyon, France.
