Yes. The PG-SGA© provides a consistent means of identifying patients with malnutrition and measuring outcomes of nutrition intervention. The PG-SGA© has been used extensively in multiple different patient populations and settings. During the past two decades, the PG-SGA and its Short Form (PG-SGA SF© or abridged version) has been the basis for almost 200 publications and scientific presentations; multiple masters and doctoral theses and dissertations; book chapters; and educational programs and has been formally translated, as well as reviewed for accuracy by professionals, and used broadly worldwide.
Please note: the PG-SGA© and its subcomponent known as the PG-SGA Short Form© (PG-SGA SF, Boxes 1-4), as well as the Pt-Global app/web tool©, are copyrighted and registered instruments, and permission is needed from Faith Ottery, MD, PhD, prior to any and all use outside of patient clinical care.
