In an environment of increasing demands and limited resources, there is an urgent need to standardize our approach to triaging patients. Fraser Health has developed and validated a novel instrument to assist dietitians in this process. Our speakers discuss how this tool is being used by BC hospital clinicians, managers, directors and VPs to allocate limited resources to ensure those most in need receive dietetic care first. You will learn about the benefits of using a dietetics patient triage tool, the challenges frontline clinicians may face with implementing a new protocol, and strategies to successfully navigate through those challenges for the greater good of the patient, clinician and hospital system.
