The Styrian pilot project VIGOUR, aimed at providing integrated nutritional care for the elderly in long-term care, has become one of three recipients of the honourable INTEGRI 2022 award.
The jury explained its choice by the high importance of optimal nutrition for geriatric patients to avoid subsequent health damage. According to the jury, the integrated care model proposed by the VIGOUR project highlights the often neglected importance of indicator-based integrated care processes and makes a major contribution to geriatric health. Furthermore, the project's emphasis on communication and optimal nutrition, which cannot be taken for granted, was highlighted.
INTEGRI is an Austrian national prize awarded every two years to organisations and people who make a valuable contribution to the development of integrated care.
