Guidelines for the Detection and Management of Malnutrition. A report by the Malnutrition Advisory Group, a standing committee of the British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition

Published 2000, Chairman and Editor: Dr Marinos Elia

The Malnutrition Advisory Group (MAG) launched the first consensus guidelines and screening tool to tackle the serious public health problem posed by malnutrition. Contrary to popular belief, malnutrition is not restricted to the developing world and is a serious UK public health problem. Malnutrition is frequently unrecognised and untreated in community, hospital and nursing homes and there is currently no nutritional tool and guidelines which comply with strict criteria laid down by the Royal College of General Practitioners, British Dietetic Association and Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network. The MAG guidelines are scientifically rigorous, evidence-based and have been piloted in the community.
