Nutrition & Dietetics

Dietitians provide nutritional care to patients and residents who are referred to the department from the various services across the hospital.  Compromised nutrition can lead to increased frailty, secondary complications, slower healing and recovery and may extend hospital stays. Optimising nutrition and hydration is crucial to enable people to maintatin and maximise their strength and well-being. 

The dietitian completes nutrition assessments, and provides recommendations and education based on best practice clinical guidelines.
