Oral Nutritional Supplements Audit

Posted: 17 Dec 08 Edited: 8 Aug 18
Audits Nutrition & Blood


The purpose of this audit is to identify those patients who have been prescribed ONS (modular and sip feeds) and identify those who have been taking these for an extended duration without specialist review, identify those who do not have a valid clinical indication for ONS and those who are now suitable to stop. Dietetic assessment, intervention, support and review will be available to the practice for all patients who are currently prescribed ONS as part of the project. The practice will also be able to seek the opinion of the dietician for patients they are considering starting on a nutritional supplement.
