HDHL JPI Knowledge Hub Malnutrition in the Elderly (MaNuEL)
In the MaNuEL Knowledge Hub, scientists with complementary expertise from 22 institutions in seven countries have worked together for two years to summarize and improve the current scientific knowledge about different aspects of malnutrition in older persons – namely prevalence, screening, etiology/determinants, interventions, policy and education.
One main objective of MaNuEL was to harmonize methods and strengthen evidence-based practice.
What is the MaNuEL Toolbox?
Practice-oriented recommendations were derived – based on MaNuEL Knowledge Hub results in the context of what was known before. These recommendations aim to support health care professionals in everyday clinical practice and also policy makers in order to enable finally that older people with malnutrition or at risk of malnutrition will benefit from research results.
