10 Malnutrition: understanding the audience Clarity that malnutrition is an issue specifically for older people Referencing ‘older people’ in headlines and supporting copy Using images of older people Signposting to Age UK Clarity that ‘weight loss’ in this context is not a good thing Use ‘loss of appetite’ vs. ‘weight loss’ alone A reminder for carers of the key signs of malnutrition and to look out for change over time Ways of empowering older people/carers to take action (vs. only going to the GP) Provide meal/snack ideas, recipes and planners Inform about alternative sources of advice and support Plus, for carers – advice on how to raise the issue A tonal balance between seriousness and positivity Amongst older people and carers there emerged a number of important requirements in order to develop engaging and effective social marketing, including the need to provide:

11 Malnutrition: understanding the audience There was a general preference for photos vs. illustrations/graphic images Images of older people would be useful to communicate who the campaign is aimed at and to raise positive engagement. Effective images were those that showed older people who are: Happy/well Enjoying their food Eating with others Shopping/living without assistance Images of meals and food also emerged as an important means to raise interest/engagement and as an opportunity to inspire interest in food. Effective images were those that showed food that looks: Filling Wholesome Traditional Broadly ‘healthy’ (i.e. not chips, cake, chocolate etc.) There also emerged a number of considerations around the use of images with this audience:

12 Malnutrition: understanding the audience Reflect differences between care homes and hospitals Staff in care homes are more likely to have a relationship with the older people that they care for, while individuals working in hospitals are more likely to be constrained by processes and time restrictions Drive awareness of the seriousness of weight loss and a loss of appetite in older people by clarifying the: Symptoms of malnutrition, Links between malnutrition and ill health Consequences of malnutrition; Provide pragmatic, realistic advice on next steps and staff to take ownership (vs. passing on responsibility to someone else) Amongst healthcare professionals there emerged a number of important requirements in order to develop engaging and effective social marketing, including the need to:

13 Malnutrition: understanding the audience There also emerged a number of considerations around the use of images with HCPs Again, there was a general preference for photos vs. illustrations/graphic images Images showing HCPs helping/feeding older people were felt to be important, in particular those that show: The enjoyment of both the patient and the HCP staff member That feeding someone is not a chore but a right of the patient Action on the issue so that staff felt they could imagine themselves in that situation It was felt important that images should be tailored to reflect: Distinctive hospital and care home settings Different HCPs in their specific uniforms Realistic and familiar tasks Where images of food might be used, it was considered important that it be shown as: Colourful and appetising Realistic to the setting There was also a positive reaction to use of infographics as a simple source of facts/information (but not graphs/anything that might be associated with targets)
