The Optimal Nutritional Care for All (ONCA) campaign
ENHA is the driving force behind the Optimal Nutritional Care for All (ONCA) campaign, which is a multi-stakeholder initiative launched in 2014 to facilitate greater screening for risk of disease-related malnutrition/undernutrition and nutritional care implementation across Europe. The ONCA campaign aims to engage with diverse stakeholders in selected focus countries to:
- Encourage them to form/strengthen a national alliance of stakeholders and develop national nutritional care plan
- Facilitate these stakeholders to benchmark current status in order to develop an aligned view on the current state of play with respect to nutritional care in a given country: the latest current status reports, delivered at the 2016 ONCA Wokrshop in Warsaw can be downloaded here.
- Bring these stakeholders together at an Implementation Conferences in Madrid on 21-22 November, 2016. Please click here to view the ONCA Member Progress Dashboards submitted for review prior to the Conference.
- Use these events to define and reconfirm the nutritional care strategies for subsequent implementation at national level
