Documentation of the dietetic care process: developing a sectoral, tailored system


Rachman-Elbaum, S. ; Porat-Katz, B. S. ; Kachal, J. ; Stark, A. H. Documentation of the dietetic care process: developing a sectoral, tailored system. 2016, 70, 753 - 755.

Use of electronic health records necessitates a systematic approach for documentation of the Dietetic Care Process (DCP). However, no standardized system exists in Israel. The authors propose a novel documentation system developed by an expert advisory committee and tailored to a specific patient population. In this pilot study, 12 experienced Israeli Registered Dietitians (RDs) (median years of practice=23.0; s.d.=8.8; practice in geriatric populations median=13.0; s.d.=8.5) were recruited to evaluate the new tool for DCP documentation. Participants completed an explanatory short course online and evaluated the utility of the tool. There was full agreement that the proposed tool is necessary and an effective method for documenting the DCP within geriatric populations in clinical practice. In conclusion, a novel, tailored and sectoral tool designed for standardized documentation of dietetic care was recommended for implementation by an experienced group of RDs with substantive clinical experience in geriatric populations.
