Description:

A research assistant from Bournemouth University aims to recruit up to 20 volunteers (working with older people in the community in Dorset) to use the Nutrition Wheel with older people they come into contact with. Data will be collected on the number of people the Nutrition Wheel was used with and likely risk of undernutrition, and focus groups / telephone interviews will be held to obtain qualitative feedback on the use of the Nutrition Wheel (e.g. ease of use, understanding the instructions etc). We will also use volunteers / care navigators working in Hampshire (through contacts with previous projects) to trial the Nutrition Wheel. In addition, we are currently validating the four ‘outer questions’ of the Wheel with the ‘MUST’ screening tool. We will then carry out further projects to support the wider application of the Nutrition Wheel.
