The overall vision of the strategy is to improve the quality of nutritional care of adults in Northern Ireland in health and social care, whether delivered or commissioned, through the prevention, identification, and management of malnutrition in all health and social care settings including people's own homes.

The Strategy

The Strategy builds on and will incorporate developments arising from the Get your 10 a Day: Nursing Care Standards for Patient Food in Hospital, launched in 2007.

It adopts and translates the 10 Key Characteristics that form the basis of good nutritional care, produced by the UK Alliance, based on the Council of Europe Resolution on Food and Nutritional Care in Hospitals, into a framework for action by describing what good nutritional care looks like.
