Dorset’s Malnutrition Programme

Published: 6th February 2020

Over the last 5 years Sue has been developing Dorset’s Malnutrition Programme – a new integrated approach across health and social care to improve nutritional care for adults across Dorset. The programme is an excellent example of joint working by health and social care partners . It involves all front line staff screening for malnutrition, inputting the data into a joint electronic system and following agreed care pathways. These pathways ensure the sharing of data between partners, and if completed correctly ensure no service user can slip through the net and not be cared for appropriately. The Dorset Malnutrition Programme received a Highly Commended Health Service Journal Award in the ‘improving value in the care of frail older patients’ category.
