Table 1 Initial lines of inquiry used in the in-depth interviews

From: Feasibility of implementing routine nutritional screening for older adults in Australian general practices: a mixed-methods study

1. Do you feel that the MNA-SF is better able to identify nutrition-related problems than using the 75+ Health Assessment alone?
2. How do you feel that the MNA-SF was received by patients? Were they comfortable with answering the questions? And having measurements taken? (For general practice staff who completed MNA-SF)
  How was the MNA-SF received by patients who completed it themselves? (For patients from general practice who self-completed MNA-SF)
3. Do you feel more confident to identifying malnutrition in older people since you attended the discussion session?
4. Do you feel more confident in managing malnutrition in older people since you attended the discussion session?
5. What additional resources or information should be made available about nutrition to staff working in General Practice?
6. Is there anything else you would like to comment on regarding your experiences either in the discussion session or administering the nutrition screening tool?
7. Has the nutrition screening increased your awareness about the prevalence of malnutrition and nutritional risk in general practice?
8 Do you think that the MNA-SF should be included as a formal part of the 75 + HA?
