Systems are often so well-developed that we accept the status quo and mostly don’t challenge the underlying issue or even realise it could be managed differently. Change is only initiated when our perceptions are challenged in some way that causes us to consider an issue differently and then introduce strategies to improve its outcome.
So we (NCA) have developed tools to check systems and identify useful solutions – such as …
Problem 1. That your residents are being weighed regularly.
Problem 2. That the nutrition component of the Care Plan is provided
Problem 3. That residents prescribed warfarin are provided an appropriate diet.
We enjoy the challenge of creating effective solutions for nutrition issues and consequently changing the status quo and outcomes - so contact us if you want to manage some aspect of your nutrition service more effectively.
