A successful day with everyone feeling more confident to help their clients with nutrition and meet their overall health goals. ... See MoreSee Less

Menu reviews are not just a quick look at the menu on paper for balance and protein content. They are a look at the food system as a whole from the way goods are stored, how the food is prepared, presented and tastes.

That information is compiled together and compares how your organisation is performing against the Aged Care Quality Standards. If your menu hasn't been reviewed recently it is time to get in touch to see how your organisation is performing. ... See MoreSee Less

The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) guidelines for describing texture modified food and drinks have been around for a while now but how confident are you that your staff are across the detail? Meal time management plans document a client's needs for a safe meal time experience but if not followed properly can lead to to a choking incident or aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition & poor outcomes for your clients. Following procedure and staff training are key to minimising risk in your organisation.

If you're based in Launceston and work in the disability sector we are offering nutrition training Tuesday 3rd of May. We start with the basics of providing good wholesome nutrition for your clients and work our way through to navigating your way through texture modified diets and mealtime management plans. We have had some excellent feedback with many participants saying they enjoyed the session and would able to implement something new in their practice or organisation from the knowledge they gained.

The best bit is that working with our partners from National Disability Services and thanks to a grant from Healthy Tasmania you or your organisation won't be out of pocket. That's right not a cent to pay for high quality nutrition training with a focus on people supporting individuals with a disability. Don't worry if you work in another part of the state we will be running a session near you soon. Get in touch to book your place for one of our sessions.
