Examining guidelines and new evidence in oncology nutrition: a position paper on gaps and opportunities in multimodal approaches to improve patient care
Abstract

Malnutrition, muscle loss, and cachexia are prevalent in cancer and remain key challenges in oncology today. These conditions are frequently underrecognised and undertreated and have devastating consequences for patients. Early nutrition screening/assessment and intervention are associated with improved patient outcomes.

Vitamin D and protein for muscle health
Abstract

This article by Richie Kirwan, discusses the casual effect that vitamin D potentially has in increasing muscle mass. There is emerging evidence for the importance of vitamin D in musculoskeletal health. Therefore, ensuring adequate serum vitamin D levels is a realistic and easy strategy to improve muscle health. Vitamin D, combined with resistance exercise and adequate protein intake could help improve quality of life and reduce the risk of common, chronic diseases of ageing.

The value of muscle in improving clinical outcomes
Abstract

This article discusses the importance of muscle mass in improving clinical outcomes and quality of life. There is a need to change the current malnutrition management approach from a focus on weight to targeting muscle mass. Screening tools should include assessment of muscle mass, and there should be a focus on the maintenance of muscle mass as a malnutrition management strategy.

Fibre: An essential nutrient for children in health and disease – applying recommendations of an expert consensus
Abstract

Fibre is an essential nutrient for human health that has short and long-term benefits.1 Despite this, most children, including those with disease-related malnutrition receiving nutrition support, fall short of daily recommended intakes. Evidence to support restriction of fibre in specific disease states is lacking, however, healthcare professionals (HCPs) often advise low fibre diets.

Use of peptide feeds in children with disease‐related malnutrition
Abstract

Paediatric patients represent a particularly vulnerable group with specific nutritional requirements, but feeding difficulties are unfortunately a common occurrence. Up to 75% of critically ill children and 90% of chronically ill children may be malnourished or have suboptimal nutrition, which in turn can lead to impaired growth and development.

During this admission she had numerous medical interventions such as steroid therapy, blood and ferritin transfusions, diuretics and a trial of Creon. She was fed via nasogastric (NG) feeding tube as she was only consuming half of her meals. Previously she had unsuccessfully trialled various whole protein oral nutritional supplements (ONS) and modular supplements, which she had felt exacerbated the diarrhoea.

Abstract

The R-MAPP app is an adaptation of the R-MAPP (Remote – Malnutrition APP)1 guidance created by European experts in clinical nutrition in response to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis as a tool for the remote evaluation of nutritional status for COVID-19 outpatients, those in the recovery phase of the disease and for all patients that need nutritional care, but cannot visit their physicians in person. It could be suitable for every situation in the future that might limit the availability of healthcare system to broaden scope.
