The framework to measure nutrition improvement and obtain nutrition care outcomes is provided by the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) and its common language, the International Dietetics & Nutrition Terminology (IDNT), developed by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The NCP guides practitioners in individualized patient nutrition care using a standardized four-step model of nutrition assessment, diagnosis, intervention, and monitoring & evaluation. This interactive workshop builds on two earlier workshops. Participants will translate a case study with familiar HIV nutrition problems into a nutrition chart note in accordance with the NCP and IDNT. How to systematically find and collect outcomes using a tested algorithm will be demonstrated. Participants will receive resources including standardized terminology, an NCP chart audit tool, the HIV nutrition draft toolkit outline, and an algorithm to take back to their unique clinic settings to monitor nutrition performance measures and capture health outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe the components of the nutrition care process.
  • Participants will be able to monitor nutrition chart notes for comprehensive and meaningful documentation.
  • Participants will be able to utilize an algorithm to collect and analyze nutrition care outcome measures.
