Event description

Description

This free workshop will share examples of good practice in developing high quality nutrition care pathways, leading to improved health outcomes and reduced malnutrition.

Come hear about the work of Lambeth, Southwark and other CCGs, where a whole systems approach adopted by dietetics and the Medicines Optimisation Team in the last 3 years has achieved significant and sustained cost savings, whilst improving the quality of nutritional care for patients at risk of malnutrition.

While inappropriate usage of oral nutritional supplements and their cost have caused concern for many years, developing whole systems approaches for the appropriate prescribing of nutrition supplements can contribute to overall savings in medicine optimisation.

This free workshop, facilitated by the Health Innovation Network’s Healthy Ageing Theme will provide an opportunity to present the journey, challenges and accomplishments of Lambeth, Southwark and other CCGs in achieving positive outcomes for nutrition care.

The workshop will also explore how the Health Innovation Network can support adoption of such practice across South London to achieve:

  • High quality nutrition care pathways
  • Contribution to Quality Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) plans/targets for local CCG Medicines Optimisation Teams
  • Significant cost savings pan South London to benefit the wider health care economy
  • Building of the evidence base for this work across South London

A networking lunch will be provided.

Please register today and forward to relevant colleagues in dietetics, medicine optimisation and pharmacy. For more information please contact Don Shenker, Project Manager, on don.shenker@nhs.net.


We look forward to seeing you there.
