Project Title: Te Puawaitanga o Nga Tapuwae Kia Ora Tonu, Life and Living in Advanced Age: A Cohort Study in New Zealand

Dr Carol Wham is a Principle Investigator for Te Pu?waitanga O Ng? Tapuwae Kia Ora Tonu, Life and Living in Advanced Age: a Cohort Study in New Zealand started in 2010 at the University of Auckland and led by Professor Ngaire Kerse. The LiLACS NZ team consists of Maori and non-Maori investigators based at the University of Auckland as well as community partners in Tauranga, Rotorua, Whakatane, Opotiki and Te Kaha. It is a world leading research programme that aims to determine the predictors of successful advanced ageing and understand the trajectories of health and wellbeing in advanced age. LiLACS NZ recruited 937 participants from the Bay of Plenty and Rotorua regions of NZ in 2010, 421 Maori born in 1920-1930, (aged 80-90 years) and 516 non-Maori born in 1925 (aged 85 years). To date, there is very little information available about the nutritional status of those age 80 years and over in NZ. In the NZ Adult Nutrition Survey data are aggregated over age 55 years for Maori and over 70 years for non-Maori. In 2010 49% of Maori and 39% of non-Maori participants were found to be at high nutrition risk using the screening tool SCREENII. A 12-month follow-up visit was completed in 2011 and a detailed dietary assessment (2xMultiple Pass Recall) was offered as part of that stage of the study. Participants who took part in any data collection at this 12-month follow-up numbered 660. Nutrient intakes were calculated by coding all food and drinks recorded by participants using FOODfiles (2010), an electronic subset of data from the New Zealand Food Composition Database which information for 58 components of 2739 foods. This project sub-contracts Dr Carol Wham to prepare academic outputs from the detailed nutrition assessment. Energy, nutrient intake, and the contribution of food groups in Maori and non-Maori octogenarians as well as nutrition outcomes related to macronutrient and micronutrient intake will be reported

Project Title: Nutrition Risk in Older People

A simple, valid and cost effective method to detect nutrition risk prior to the development of overt malnutrition may reduce health problems. This study is the first to validate the nutrition screening tool (SCREEN) for people in their eighties. The SCREEN tool is a 14 item questionnaire that provides information on weight change, food intake and whether people skip meals, can shop, prepare and cook meals; whether they have any appetite or swallowing difficulties and whether they eat alone or with others. Forty five people aged 85 to 86 years living in Tauranga enrolled in a longitudinal study of ageing (LiLACS NZ) were recruited to the study. Equal proportions of participants were recruited at low, medium and high nutrition risk based on their SCREEN scores 12 months prior. Validation of SCREEN was achieved by comparing the participant's new SCREEN scores against a dietitians risk rating. To undertake the risk rating assessment a medical history, weight and height measures and three days of detailed dietary intake were collected. Statistical methods were used to determine the sensitivity and specificity of the cut-off point to determine those at high nutrition risk. A new cut off point to detect nutrition risk was defined. This cut-point can now be recommended for future nutrition risk assessment in this age group.
