More nutrition help for high risk patients

7 July 2016

A new system at Logan Hospital will put a greater focus on providing effective nutrition support to around 100 high risk and malnourished patients on the medical and surgical wards every month.

Director Nutrition and Dietetics Christine Josephson said CBORD was an internationally recognised software program that automated menu management and enabled greater efficiencies.

She said CBORD would allow nutrition assistants more face-to-face time with patients, assisting them to make food choices to aid their medical treatment by either helping them to complete their menu, or by offering them a choice from a selection of mid meal snacks.

"We are already receiving wonderful feedback from patients on how much they value the nutrition assistants helping them select their food to match how they are feeling," Christine said.

This project is supported by Metro South Health's Transformation and Innovation Collaborative (TIC).
