Setting the standard of nutritional assessment
The Scored Patient-Generated Subjective Global Assessment (PG-SGA©) sets the standard of nutritional assessment. The PG-SGA© is the preeminent interdisciplinary patient assessment (weight, intake, symptoms, functional status, disease state, metabolic stress and nutritional physical examination) in oncology and other chronic catabolic conditions. For 20 years, the PG-SGA© is used internationally and has entered the digital world in 2014.
The PG-SGA© enables the patient and professional to quickly and easily, but systematically assess and monitor (risk for) malnutrition and to evaluate effects of interventions. Moreover, the PG-SGA score triages for proactive (nutritional) intervention.
