Mini Nutritional Assessment MNA

The Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA) is a rapidly administered, simple tool for evaluating the nutritional status of older persons. It consists of 18

items [38] and can be administered by a healthcare professional in less than 15 minutes. It involves a general assessment of health, a dietary assessment, anthropometric measurements, and a subjective self-assessment by the patient (Table 2). The results of the MNA test classify the patient as well nourished, at risk for malnutrition, or malnourished. The MNA test was shown to be 92-98% accurate. It is a simple, non-invasive, well-validated screening tool for malnutrition in elderly persons.
