Counties Manukau Health Acute Allied Health Team
Paediatric dietitians are active members of the multidisciplinary team and participate in the multidisciplinary meetings, ward rounds and clinics. Nutrition assessment, planning, implementation and monitoring of nutrition care plans, as well as nutrition education and counselling are integral to providing a quality service. Our primary focus in the paediatric wards and neonatal unit is to provide acute care. Patients can be followed up after discharge from hospital, by either a home visit or clinic appointment with the community paediatric dietitian.
