The PG-SGA Training Courses held in May 2016 in Groningen, The Netherlands and Porto, Portugal were a great success. During both courses, healthcare professionals were trained in using the PG-SGA. The training included lectures on the historical basis for the development of the PG-SGA and its rationale and applications. In a practical workshop, the healthcare professionals have been practising with case-base scoring ability for nutritional risk or deficit using the PG-SGA.
You can now view the videos of the training course held in Porto on the Pt-Global YouTube channel! The pictures taken during the training courses are available on Facebook.
In Porto, the effect of the training course on comprehensibility, difficulty, and content validity (relevance) of the PG-SGA as perceived by Healthcare professionals has been investigated. The study indicated that the training course was effective in improving healthcare pofessionals’ knowledge on the PG-SGA. The results of the study will be presented at the ESPEN congress in Copenhagen, September 2016.
We would like to thank everyone that helped to make both training courses such a great experience.
