The primary goal of clinical nutrition services is prevention and
treatment of nutrition related symptoms and/or disease.
Throughout HPHA, a team of Registered Dietitians (RD) and Nutrition and
Food Service Supervisors (NFSS) aim to provide effective, evidence-based
nutritional assessment, advice and support to patients and their families. They
translate nutrition science into practical information and advice about
- RDs and NFSSs play an active role within the interprofessional team to
develop clinically appropriate nutrition care plans.
- RDs and NFSSs also work closely with nutrition and food services staff
to ensure suitable therapeutic meals are provided to patients.
Clinical Nutrition Assistants are the key link between the Registered Dietitians
and the Nutrition & Food Services department, providing a continuum of
care, which ensures that services are easily accessible and sensitive to
individual dietary needs.
