Nutrition and Dietetics
Nutrition and Dietetics offers both inpatient and outpatient services. This department comprises qualified and accredited dietitians providing a wide range of specialist services in rehabilitation.
Nutrition and Dietetics works closely with our Food Service to ensure nutritional adequacy and delivery of high quality meals meeting our clients’ dietary needs and contribute to the enjoyment of their meals.
Our Nutrition and Dietetics department was the first in Australia to implement the CBORD Windows Nutrition and Menu Management system. This system ensures inpatients receive choice from nutritionally balanced meals tailored to their specific requirements.
