This survey is being conducted to assess professional practice gaps1 of individual health care clinicians and healthcare teams in identifying and treating anorexia in older adults (anorexia in aging). For the purposes of this assessment, the older adult is defined as an individual who is age 65 years and older.
There are no foreseeable risks for participating in this survey, and there are no benefits to you as a participant other than contributing to a greater understanding of the care of older patients with anorexia. All data will be collected confidentially and only reported in aggregate.
If you agree to participate in this survey, you will be asked to respond to a total of 26 items (maximum) which will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Individuals are eligible to participate in this survey if they care for older patients who are at risk for anorexia or older patients who have been diagnosed with anorexia, including individuals who provide direct care or care as a member of a healthcare team.
This survey is part of a mixed-methods assessment that is being conducted globally by the Society on Sarcopenia, Cachexia and Wasting Disorders (SSCWD) and is supported by an independent educational grant from Pfizer.
