About

Many elderly suffer from nutritional problems that can cause (or can be caused by) a number of complications such as weakened immune systems and chronic health conditions (diabetes type 2, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases or even osteoporosis). Through appropriate adjustments in the diets, on the basis of nutritional advice, the burden of established diseases as well as the risks of developing further conditions can be diminished. The goal of our proposed project LIFANA is to develop and evaluate the LIFANA Nutrition Solution to support healthy nutrition.. This may include general preferences, such as culture, taste, and budget, but more importantly automated and personalised nutritional recommendations based on advice provided by professional nutritionists and allergists. This is a national project co-funded by the European Union. One of the activities of the project is to collect information through a survey with patients. These questions will contribute to creating solutions that can explore the perspectives of patients.

Full description

Patients will be approached in the clinic by a neurologist and health care professionals. The questionnaire will take place at cereneo. The group will consist of 25 participants and last between 1h. The Survey will be conducted by a clinician who will take notes. Semi-structured discussion guide will be used. With regard to the communication, the moderator will identify factors that will influence communication in a positive or negative way. The health professionals will perform content analyses on the transcripts; the schema of categories will be oriented towards the research questions, using open questions, directly addressing quiet participants, and handling the discussion guide in a flexible way.
