Abstract [en]

Background: This study aimed to assess adherence to oral nutrition supplements (ONS) among hospital outpatients and to assess patient characteristics, experiences of ONS, and the characteristics of ONS prescriptions in clinical practice.

Methods: Hospital outpatients aged 18 years and prescribed ONS by a dietitian at a Swedish hospital were referred to the study from September 2016 to February 2017. Data were collected from structured telephone interviews, medical records, and a register of ONS delivered. Adherence to ONS was measured by dividing self-reported intake of ONS (frequency question and 24-hour recall question) by the amount prescribed and using the medication possession ratio (MPR).

Results: Of the 96 patients included (mean age 67±13 years), 52% were male. The 2 most frequent medical diagnoses were malignancy and digestive system disease. Mean adherence to ONS was 93% measured by the frequency question, 87% measured by the 24-hour recall question, and 76% according to MPR. The majority of the patients (83%) were prescribed 1–3 bottles of ONS/day. The average number of flavors of ONS delivered was 4.2. Before prescription, 69% of the patients had been allowed to taste the ONS and 92% had chosen the flavors to be prescribed. Over 75% liked the taste of the ONS and considered them to be good for their health.

Conclusions: Adherence to ONS was high in this population, which might be explained by the individual tailoring of ONS prescriptions by a dietitian, positive experiences of ONS, and the relatively young mean age of the participants.

Background & aims

The effects of oral nutritional supplements (ONS) have been evaluated in several clinical trials and more studies have been requested. To facilitate replication, support accurate evaluations of research results and avoid research waste, high quality reporting of interventions in clinical trials is needed. The aim of this study is to assess the quality of reporting of interventions in publications describing randomised controlled trials of ONS in populations with malnutrition or at nutritional risk.

Methods

The PubMed database was searched for articles describing ONS trials published between January 2002 and December 2015. The quality of intervention descriptions was evaluated using the Template for Intervention Description and Replication (TIDieR) checklist and guide, which contains twelve items. Articles published before and after 2011 were compared.

Results

Of 76 articles identified, only 3% reported all TIDieR items in sufficient detail. The most frequently missing elements were descriptions of the intervention procedures (e.g. how the ONS were to be taken and if participants were given a choice of flavours), which were adequately presented in only 26% of the articles. Less than half of the articles included a description of the intervention provider and sufficient information about the location(s) for the intervention. Information about adherence and mode of delivery was reported in 60–65% of the articles. Most frequently reported, in >70% of the articles, were items regarding the brief name of the intervention, the rationale for the intervention and the materials used (i.e. information about the specific ONS product(s) administered). The reporting quality for two of the items (materials and provider) was higher in articles published after 2011.

Conclusions

The quality of reporting of ONS interventions was found to be poor. The descriptions mostly lacked information about intervention procedures, provider and location(s). A moderately higher reporting quality was observed in articles published after 2011. These findings imply that an improvement in the descriptions of ONS interventions is required in future clinical trials of malnutrition treatment.

Abstract [en]

Background and aims: Oral Nutritional Supplements (ONS) are commonly used in combination with dietary changes when treating disease-related malnutrition. In Sweden ONS are primarily prescribed by registered dietitians and subsidized by county councils, and there are no standardized guidelines for prescription. The aim of this study was to examine factors influencing the choice of ONS prescriptions.

Methods: A newsletter with a link to an online survey was e-mailed to 1480 members of The Swedish Association of Clinical Dietitians (DRF) as well as to other dietitians with contact details on the DRF´s webpage.

Results: A total of 133 dietitians, from 17 out of 21 county councils working in various settings, answered the survey. When asked to choose from alternatives of important influencing factors for ONS prescription the three most frequently selected were, patient taste preferences (96 %), nutritional requirements (93%), and medical diagnosis (85 %). Those were followed by, dietitian’s previous experiences of successful ONS (76 %), local procurements (62 %), food allergy and intolerance (53 %), price (23 %), dietitian taste preferences (15 %), and other alternatives (8 %). Over half (52 %) of the dietitians rated patient taste preferences as the single most influential factor when prescribing ONS. Although, 51% stated that patients were seldom or otherwise not provided with the opportunity to taste ONS before prescription. Onethird (35%) of the dietitians stated that representatives from ONS companies impact their choice for prescription.

Conclusion: Patient taste preferences and nutritional requirements, were found to be the most important influencing factors for prescribing ONS. In conjunction, it was also found that many patients seldom get the opportunity to try ONS before prescription.
