PLEASE NOTE: the main part of the session was presented in French but this version of the recording has a simultaneous interpretation in English.
This session will demonstrate a collaborative approach between food service and clinical nutrition to provide dietary services that meet the physiological needs of users within their production/distribution constraints. The implementation of Planning, Programming and Research Officer positions in support of managers in each of these divisions facilitated interdepartmental collaboration, as well as elaboration of several projects that improved the quality of care provided to users. As a consequence, system management tools, standards, as well as clinical protocols were developed leading to more efficient database management, increased food safety and improved patient-focused care.
After this session, participants will be able to:
- Identify the benefits of inter-professional collaboration with an approach focused on enhancing the safety and quality of care;
- Integrate the role of Planning, Programming and Research Officers to improve collaboration between food and clinical nutrition services within our organization; and
- Describe the importance of managing a centralized database by the Planning, Programming and Research Officers for optimal maintenance of patient menus.
