MARTIN-FOLGUERAS, Tomás et al. Process of medical nutrition therapy. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2022, vol.39, n.5, pp.1166-1189.  Epub Dec 19, 2022. ISSN 1699-5198.

Medical nutrition therapy is a very useful tool in maintaining and recovering the health of patients with disease-related malnutrition, although its implementation can be complex and is not without risks. Quality processes are understood as sets of activities that are related or interact to transform input elements into results. From the SENPE Management Work Group we present the process of medical nutrition therapy (PMNT), which aims to facilitate the management of clinical nutrition of a multidisciplinary nutrition support team in a hospital setting.

This paper describes the seven sub-processes PMNT is comprised of, in addition to a previous nutritional screening sub-process. Each sub-process is divided into a first section with a technical sheet detailing its general aspects, while a second section proposes key objectives, quality indicators, and standards for their evaluation.

Keywords : Quality; Process management; Quality indicator; Quality standard.
