Topic: Evaluating the nutritional status

Definition

Evaluating nutritional status entails analyzing a person’s dietary intake, body composition, and relevant biomarkers to determine their overall health and well-being. Its goal is to determine if a person is getting enough nutritional needs, determine shortages or surpluses, and inform interventions to improve their nutritional health.

Article: Vereecken, C., Covents, M., Maes, L., & Moyson, T. (2013). Formative evaluation of the feedback component of Children’s and Adolescents’ Nutrition Assessment and Advice on the Web (CANAA-W) among parents of schoolchildren. Public health nutrition, 16(1), 15-26.

Topic Question: What methods can be used to assess nutritional status?

Definition

The question entails an analysis of strategies and tools for evaluating individuals’ nutrient intake. Examples of answers to the question include dietary surveys and biochemical analysis (Vereecken et al., 2013). The choice of a method depends on the availability of resources.

Why the Question is a Problem

Nutritional status is an integral part of holistic healthcare. Understanding nutritional assessment methods is critical because it allows healthcare practitioners to know nutritional deficiencies, imbalances, or excesses in individuals (Vereecken et al., 2013; Campa et al., 2021). This knowledge informs personalized interventions, dietary changes, and supplementation strategies, promoting better healthcare.

 

 

Article Search

Article: Bhattacharya, A., Pal, B., Mukherjee, S., & Roy, S. K. (2019). Assessment of nutritional status using anthropometric variables by multivariate analysis. BMC public health, 19, 1-9.

Data Search

The article database of origin is Google Scholar. Moreover, the search term that facilitated article identification is nutritional status. 7 sources were located before an inclusion criterion led to the selection of the Bhattacharya et al. (2019) study. The inclusion criterion was the article’s publication year.

Article Findings

How It Addresses the Topic

The Bhattacharya et al. (2019) study addresses the topic of methods of assessing nutritional status by suggesting some strategies. For example, Bhattacharya et al. (2019) argue that anthropometric variables can be used to assess nutritional status.

Type of Research: Cross-sectional.

Findings

The article substantiates one method of assessing nutritional status. Anthropometric variables such as Body Mass Index (BMI), Mid-Upper Arm Circumference (MUAC), and Waist-to Height Ratio (WHtR) are effective in assessing nutritional status (Bhattacharya et al., 2019). Multivariate analysis revealed anthropometric variables’ relationship with key nutritional indicators, highlighting their utility in assessing population-level nutritional health.

Reason for Selection

The article gives an understanding of anthropometric variables and their use in assessing nutritional status.

Evidence for Practice

Summary of Evidence

The evidence in the article is derived from the use of multivariate analysis to assess nutritional status using anthropometric variables such as body mass index BMI and WHtR.

How it will Improve Practice

The evidence presented in the article has the potential to improve practice by emphasizing the effectiveness of anthropometric variables and multivariate analysis in assessing nutritional status, thereby offering knowledge for doctors to decide effectively and intervene in patients’ nutritional health.

How it Decreases a Gap to Practice

The article’s evidence bridges the gap between research and practice by providing a viable way of evaluating nutritional status using anthropometric variables and multivariate analysis, allowing for more accurate and standardized evaluations in real-world healthcare settings.

Concerns

No outstanding concerns in the evidence were identified.

Sharing of Evidence

Audience: Healthcare professionals, researchers, and policy-makers.

Sharing strategy: Lectures and conferences.

Resources: Projector and audio systems.

Importance of Sharing with the Nursing Profession

The findings of the article should be shared with the nursing profession to improve nurses’ knowledge and skills in assessing nutritional status, allowing them to offer evidence-based care and interventions for clients with nutritional challenges.

 

Conclusion

Researchers’ efforts in finding and determining methods of assessing nutritional needs are integral to healthcare and credibility and validity must be standard practice for all such efforts. Regardless of the type of nutritional needs assessment, findings help healthcare practitioners in fostering evidence-based care for patients, sometimes developing individual intervention programs. Information about methods of assessing nutritional status should be shared with all relevant stakeholders to increase an appreciation of the same among practitioners.
