Patient-Centered Outcomes to Assess Nutrition Interventions
The MANNA Institute presents an academic seminar featuring Kristin Rising, MD, MSHP and Mackenzie Kemp, MSW, MPH of Jefferson's Center for Connected Care to discuss recent advancements in nutrition-related outcomes assessment.

Assessing the impact of nutrition interventions requires having a well-defined outcome. Yet current nutrition-related outcomes lack incorporation of what matters to patients, which has been largely unexplored to date. We engaged patients and clinicians at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center through interviews to assess what patients are hoping for related to nutrition interventions: Gaining weight? Having energy to cook? Simply being able to enjoy mealtime with family? We will discuss our findings from this project as well as future work underway to 1) incorporate findings into a measurement tool for testing with patients with cancer and 2) develop improved processes for connecting patients with the right level of and amount of nutrition support.
