My Food Choice Clinical Support Virtual Forum


11 March 2020, 02:00pm to 11 March 2020, 03:30pm

Virtual Forum

This My Food Choice Clinical Support Forum will provide various insights into how the Nutrition Dashboard and Tray Monitor applications are used in clinical practice – with experiences shared from large sized clinical departments, medium sized clinical departments and also smaller facilities.

The presentations will cover practical application of the data in clinical practice, but will also cover challenges experienced in implementation of changes in work practice.


This forum will bring together NSW Health dietitians and other key stakeholders (e.g. Dietitian Assistants, health managers, food service staff, other interested clinicians) that currently have access to the Tray Monitor application and nutrition dashboard, or who are interested in implementing it in the future.
