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 more than 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.
Setting the standard for optimal diagnosis and treatment
The PG-SGA/Pt-Global Platform, a volunteering network, aims to set the standard for and to facilitate optimal diagnosis and proactive treatment of malnutrition, to improve clinical outcome and patient quality of life, by creating and sharing knowledge and materials on patient global assessment.
