NHS Improvement | October 2018 | Nutrition and hydration collaborative
NHS Improvement ran a 180-day programme, with 25 volunteer trusts, to improve nutritional care by increasing the accuracy of nutritional screening and the appropriateness of nutritional interventions.
The overall aims of the collaborative were to support trusts to:
- increase in the proportion of patients with an accurate nutritional screen
- increase in the proportion of patients receiving appropriate nutritional interventions
- introduce and increase the use quality improvement tools and techniques
In addition to these aims organisations could identify their own quality improvement focus if appropriate.
25 trusts volunteered to be part of the programme to drive quality improvements, each shared their good practice, what they have learnt about quality improvement and helpful techniques with each other.
