The department would like to congratulate Yeo Pei Sien on successfully completing her Doctor of Philosophy Viva Voce. She successfully defended her thesis titled “Validation of Paediatric-3-MinNS nutrition screening tools and its application in Children and its application in children admitted to three Malaysian Hospitals”. She also successfully published the report titled “Validation of 3-Minute Nutrition Screening-Paediatric (Paediatric 3-MinNS) for Hospitalized Children” in Topics in Clinical Nutrition.
She was supervised by Hazreen Abd Majid and Professor Dato’ Dr. Christopher Boey Chong Meng from the Department of Paediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya. The tool will be useful for both hospital pre-admission screening as well as screening by parents at home to identify children with malnutrition.
