Structured Medical Nutrition Training to identify Malnutrition (India)

To celebrate the Grant’s 15th anniversary, the 2023 MNI Grant was awarded to two outstanding projects, the 2nd one from India

‘Structured Medical Nutrition Training to identify Malnutrition’ submitted by India Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (IAPEN).

The project aims to train 10,000 healthcare professionals over 3 years, across India to identify and diagnose malnutrition via special trained multidisciplinary task force and a structured training module. The training module would encompass definition of malnutrition, impact of malnutrition and tools for screening and assessment of malnutrition (MUST, GLIM, NUTRIC Scores, Dietary Diversity Scores, and Handgrip Dynamometry ).

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.
