The Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) tool has been developed to assist in assessing nutritional status of adults across acute, rehabilitation, community and residential aged care settings. The SGA uses a variety of nutrition parameters including weight, diet history, gastrointestinal symptoms, nutrition related functional capacity and a physical examination. Produced by the Nutrition and Dietetics department at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, this DVD is designed to improve the ability to accurately diagnose malnutrition using the SGA.
Topics covered on the DVD include:
- Nutrition screening
- Nutrition assessment
- The SGA form
- Patient case studies
