Registration takes up 2 minutes and it requires a one-step confirmation by clicking to a link sent to the registered email.

Codes are required to guarantee anonymity of participating centers and users. Ordered codes will remain valid for the Healthcare professional/unit also in the future, but it cannot be used for a different unit. An overview of ordered codes are listed in the "my nutritionDay" account.

How does it work?

At nutritionDay, questionnaires are given to patients once they arrive in the Primary care center.

The Primary care questionnaire has two parts:

1. the first part is to be filled out by the patients themselves in the waiting room (11 questions, 5 mins).

they will bring the filled out questionnaire to the doctor or unit staff who will perform the visit. Only patients (>18years old), who came to visit the primary healthcare doctor or associated staff in the Primary Care center can participate to the audit.

2. the second part to be filled out by the collaborating Primary Care physician or associated staff who carried out the medical appointment with the patient. (6 questions, 2 mins)

Physician, dieticians, nutritionists, nurses and specialists working in the Primarx care center can participate to the audit. Unit staff can provide data on patients' comorbidities, nutritional therapy instituted and follow-up needs. Outcome of patients is collected after six months form nDay.

The data collected on paper sheets at nutritionDay, will be transferred into the international nDay database created for Primary care. No patients can be identified from the database. Each patient is assignedwith a number, so that only the doctor who performed the medical appointment can identify to which patient each answer belongs to. The data collected will be held by the physicians who collaborate with the study and will only be kept for the time necessary for data processing. The data will be entered into the international nutritionDay database and used for further analysis.
