Multidisciplinary approaches to develop a prototype for the prevention of malnutrition in OP: products, people, places and procedures

Project overview

mappmal was a three year NDA multidisciplinary research project that exploited new technologies to rethink and test new ways that food can be produced and delivered to older patients using a ‘a joined-up’ approach that considers all stages of the food journey, from production to consumption (ie, products, people, places and procedures).

The amenability of this new systems prototype to become embedded in current UK practice in hospitals and other care settings was also investigated by engaging end users and key stakeholders throughout the development.
