Have you an interest in Nutrition and Dietetics? Do you work in Health and Social Care in the North East and North Cumbria? Are you interested in joining a network that can help support the delivery of care and improve outcomes of local people through the use of simple digital tools?

We are looking for Dietitians, Carers, Care homes, Nurses, Doctors and Third Sector Organisations to join our first Network event on the 17th of September at the Centre for Life, Newcastle upon Tyne. Delegates are invited to a networking lunch to kick off the day from 12 noon which will be followed by presentations from industry experts.

The event will be a great chance to understand more about Health Call, hear about developments across the country as well as solutions that have already been implemented to tackle undernutrition. The event will also offer delegates to identify and explore how technology can support your day to day work.

Malnutrition is a major issue in the U.K., but recent developments offer a whole range of new solutions that can deliver improved outcomes whilst creating high-quality, sustainable services. This event, the first one of its kind hosted by Health Call, will update delegates on what is already happening, what is being developed and what more is possible, for example, weight management, paediatrics and home enteral feeding.

For example, in Northern Ireland, a digital undernutrition service for care homes has improved the quality of care for residents through increased monitoring, resulting in more proactive treatment due to regular telephone reviews and the timely response of dietitians. This case study, as well as others, will be explored and breakout sessions will develop ideas on where else this technology can be used to support patients with nutritional needs.

@lesleybainbrid1

 

Lesley trained as a nurse and midwife in Gateshead in an apprentice style training that she loved.  She says she laughed through all the student years while making lifelong friends and importantly being privileged to work alongside, and learn from, nurses and midwives she still regards to be among the best in the business.  Since then she has complemented her training with graduations from Northumbria University.  Professionally there are two things that get Lesley out of bed every morning and they are nursing in its fullest sense and the care of older people.  Having built her career across a range of settings and services she has developed a local, regional and national profile and currently she is the Clinical Lead in the North East and North Cumbria’s Frailty Network.

Irene believes that in the changing environment of dietetics with greater numbers of referrals and increases in complex cases it is essential to develop and support her staff to continue to provide a safe, efficient and effective service to their clients.  One of the ways she does this is through investigating and testing new ways of working, including the use of new technologies.

Specialist Dietician

@ctmcshane2000

@CDDFTNHS

 

Catherine is a specialist dietitian with a career spanning 20 years. Initially specialising in care of the elderly in both the acute and community setting, more recently Catherine has been involved in developing training, resources and guidelines for health and social care staff to identify, treat and monitor undernutrition in the community. As a result of frustrations of not being able to monitor patients as regularly as needed, she sought a solution to improve the dietetic care that could be provided to patients at risk of undernutrition. This has led to the creation of NHS Health Call Undernutrition. Catherine has been instrumental in clinically leading the development, implementation and evaluation of this and is now supporting the development of further digital solutions for health care related issues.
